Examination Dates

In October 2008 the faculty of mechanical engineering has introduced a time schedule, when written exams are to be held. This time schedule is not generally binding, but previous experience has shown that nearly all dates of written exams are according to the schedule.

Exams for lectures that are held in the current semester are placed at the beginning of the non-terms, all the rest of them take place at the end. The generated free space can be used to do internships or work placements.

Time schedule for summer term and winter term.

Minor changes are possible, for example when an examination date falls on a bank holiday or written exams have to be shifted in individual cases.

Only dates published by the department II are binding!
Date and time can be slightly shifted!


Most students don't really know, what their study regulations, internship regulations or the general examination terms contain. For this reason we provide some documents for you which summarize these regulations short and understandable (in German).

Post-exam review

The following documents manage the process of post-exam review at the TU at the department of mechanical engineering. Important: only the General examination terms(APB) in their latest edition is obligatory. However, in those are only the student’s right to have apost-exam review put on record. The guidelines of the department II as well as the guidelines from the department of mechanical engineering are highly recommended, but absolutely nonbinding.
