Description of exams and course work
The content of the report is based on attendance at a minimum of 8 lectures in the MSE’s series “World of Engineering” or selected lecture series by other faculties. Recognized lecture series are published in the form of an overview on the Engineering course website, which is updated each semester (https://www.engineering.mse.tum.de/aktuell/ringvorlesung/) and in the Moodle course for the MINT (STEM) program. As an alternative to the lectures, the students can also participate in the excursions offered as part of the MINT (STEM) program and compile the report on the basis of the excursion content. One excursion is equivalent to one lecture.
In their reports, the participants link theoretical content with engineering and scientific practice and are required to incorporate their own experiences and reflections on various areas of application. Selected content from the lectures will be discussed and assessed based on the theoretical knowledge gained during the orientation semester. This will test whether the students are capable of establishing a link between the content of study and teaching provided and between practical engineering and scientific application. Through their own reflections and assessments, the students show that they will also be able to apply this knowledge in their future studies and career planning.
Precise details on the content, form and organization of the report are published in the Moodle course for the MINT (STEM) program (“Guidelines for the report for the ‘World of Engineering’ module (Perspectives Module)”).
The exam may be repeated at the end of the semester.
