General information to registration procedures at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering
Registration for courses (amongst others lecture, exercise, tutorials) and examinations for Bachelor and Master students is generally conducted through modular registration procedures in CAMPUS-Office.
Registration for courses
The modular registration procedures for courses (lecture, exercise etc.) are open for registration from the beginning of the semester, i.e. from April 1st in summer semester and October 1st in winter semester. Registration ends at the end of the semester.
In cases of participant-limited modules resp. modules with special didactic forms (amongst others laboratories, internships), registration dates may be earlier or module-specific. Please pay attention to information of chairs and institutes involved.

FAQs Registration Procedures
How can I register for a course resp. an L2P course room?
Students wanting to access learning material in L2P course rooms generally register for the lecture resp. the exercise through the registration procedure. With successful allocation, access to the L2P course room is activated. Modular registration procedures for lectures are labeled “Anmeldung zur Vorlesung|Übung <Title of module>“.
Students from programs graduating with a Diploma, Magister or State Examination degree can also register through modular registration procedures if the chair has activated the course for them. Usually, registration is possible via email to the mentor of the lecture.
How can I register from an exam?
Students whishing to take an exam in a module must register through the registration procedure of the exam. The modular registration procedures for exams are labeled “Anmeldung zur Prüfung <Title of module>”.
Is the registration for a course an automatic registration for an exam?
Registration for a lecture is not an automatic registration for an exam. In case you want to take the corresponding exam, registration through the modular registration procedure for the exam is obligatory.
Exceptions are internships or laboratories in which no written or oral exams are taken
I have to retake an exam. Do I have to register for it in CAMPUS Office?
Registration for retake exams through modular registration procedures is not necessary. Retakes (e.g. due to failing an exam, withdrawal, medical certificate) will automatically be re-registered by the Central Examination Office.
Important: If you register through a modular registration procedure for a retake exam and then you de-register within deadlines, you will still be registered for it by the Central Examination Office. You risk having a failed attempt due to “Not showing up (NE)”.
What is an orientation de-registration?
The orientation de-registration enables you to de-register from an exam without having the Central Examination Office registering your exam. The exact deadlines are regulated in the respective (framework) examination regulation.
For the summer semester an orientation de-registration is possible until the last Friday in May and for the winter semester until the last Friday in November.
When and where can I see my exam registrations?
Registration for a course or exam does not work. What can I do?

When notifying problems, please always include the following information, since otherwise it is not possible to process your request:
- Full name,
- Matriculation number,
- Name of registration procedure,
- Degree program as well as occupational field/field of specialization,

I missed a registration deadline. Is a late registration possible?
Registration for an exam after the registration deadline is usually not possible.

A late registration requires approval of the examination board, which is why the submission of an application must occur immediatelly under specification of convincing documented reasons.
