Courses

A complete description of the courses of the Joint Master Program and optional electives can be found in the individual study guides of the partner universities. The individual study guides of the partner universities can be found here:

Each student must obtain a minimum of 120 credit points within 4 years to be awarded their Master degrees. It is recommended that students acquire their 120 credit points from the complete programme described in the course calendar to be announced at the beginning of each semester. However, each student must:

  1. Obtain a minimum of 25 credit points from each partner universities courses;
  2. Pass 2 out of 3 core modules at TUD, 2 out of 3 at ETH and 2 out of 6 at RWTH;
  3. Obtain 30 credit points for the Master thesis project including an obligatory colloquium at the end of the project.

In addition to courses from the course calendar students may also obtain credit points from regular courses offered at TUD, ETH and RWTH, but these courses require a permission from the Joint Examination Board.
