News Update

Availability student service

Since the BTU is in online mode and the student service is therefore currently only available by e-mail, there is a very high volume of inquiries. We are working flat out to process all requests as quickly as possible. Please refrain from multiple requests and queries about the processing status. If employees are not available, you will receive an absence note with information on the substitution arrangements. Please note: If you submit requests by e-mail in accordance with the current BTU guidelines, the date of receipt of the e-mail is considered the date of receipt of the mail. For particularly urgent matters, the Student Service is also available by telephone. Please use the telephone service only in these cases.

Availability: Monday to Friday from 9.00 to 15.00

We thank you very much for your patience and understanding.

Important note: Extension of the registration period for modules without participant restrictions

The lecture period for the summer semester 2020 started on 06.04.2020. 

The start of classroom teaching is currently scheduled for 20.04.20, although the actual start depends on the further development of the corona pandemic. Between the start of lectures and the start of classroom teaching, courses with online offerings will start. The registration periods for the summer semester have been updated:

Registration for the modules with restricted attendance will take place regularly  (23.03.-05.04.2020).

The deadline for registration for all other modules will be extended by one week (06.04. - 03.05.2020).

This also extends the deadline for deregistration of modules with MCA to 03.05.2020


The semester schedule has been updated.

Rescheduling of cancelled (final) oral examinations during the online mode of the BTU

Generally it will only be possible to reschedule cancelled examinations once the online mode of the BTU has ended. In the meantime the legal framework has been set to conduct cancelled oral examinations video-based in exceptional cases. This option also includes cancelled or scheduled defence of the thesis. It is restricted to the period of the online mode. Students who wish to make use of this option need to register for the examination through an e-mail-request to the (first) examiner. The text to be used for the request can be found here. Further explanations for students and examiners are to be found here.

General Studies Module Catalogue Summer Semester 2020

For the General Studies in summer semester 2020 in study programmes at the BTU only the modules stated in the catalogue are permitted. Other modules are not allowed to be selected.

Please notice the indices, which are determined by the heads of the study programmes. Not all the modules in the catalogue are permitted in every study programme.

General Studies Module Catalogue Summer Semester 2020

The General Studies (GS) are intended to teach skills beyond the specialised knowledge. Therefore  General Studies are not part of the regular study programme, but add subject independent aspects. They do not replace skill integrated instruction, necessary from the angle of the study programme.

Guideline General Studies

Students studying a modularized programme can register the modules of the general studies online.
