Module code: BIMA320
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will:
_ be able to work independently on a special or interdisciplinary topic from the field of civil engineering using scientific methods within a given time period and document their results in writing.

[updated 28.09.2020]
Module content:
_ Students are given approx. four months to write their Master thesis. It must be written independently and in the style of a scientific paper. The student´s personal contribution must be clearly recognizable in their thesis. The written thesis is an essential component of the assessment work. Both the approach and the result(s) of the work must be described.
_ The results will be presented by the student in a public lecture with a scientific discourse.
_ This presentatioon of the thesis by the resp. student shows that he/she has mastered not only the written but also the verbal presentation of their results within a given time period, in a clearly structured manner and that they can answer questions on their respective topic.
_ There will be a regular exchange between the student and his/her supervisor during the period in which the student is writing his/her thesis. This will allow the supervisor to take countermeasures in good time, should the student require guidance during the period in which they are writing their thesis.
