Recognition of academic achievements during exchange semesters

Through the recognition of academic achievements gained abroad, the department supports you in your plans to complete part of your studies at a foreign university.

A compulsory module or an elective module of a study program in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (EI) at the University of Stuttgart can generally only be replaced by a module taken, for example, as part of a study program abroad, if:

  • Firstly, the external module has at least the same number of credits (ECTS) as the compulsory or elective module to be replaced in the course of study in the Department of EI and.
  • Secondly, the external module has at least 70% correspondence in content with the module to be replaced in the degree program in the EI department.

As a rule, an elective module of a degree program in the EI department can be replaced by an external module only if

  • Firstly, the module already completed has at least the same number of credits (ECTS) as the elective module to be replaced in the course of study in the EI department, and
  • Secondly, in the opinion of the chairperson of the examination board, the external module is suitable for the course of study in the EI department.

The chairperson of the examination board is responsible for the recognition of academic achievements gained abroad. Please refer to the relevant information provided by the examination office.
