Your Faculty of Textile and Clothing Technology

Information about our Degree programmes taught in English can be found on our English language website. Please click on the Union Flag in the header of the page.

Curriculum and Module Manuals


The curriculum, also called degree programme pathway, is part of the examination regulations. It lists which studies and examinations must be completed in order to obtain a Bachelor's or Master's degree.

The chronological sequence of study elements outlined in the degree programme pathway is not obligatory for students. However, the plan shows how the studies can be completed within the standard time to degree. In addition, it should be remembered that course offerings and semester schedules are aligned with the degree programme pathway.

In the dropdown on the right, you will find the module handbooks and degree programme pathways of the expired 2010 examination regulations.

Module Manuals

The curriculum only provides information on the surname, scope, course type and time allocation of the courses. The module handbooks, on the other hand, provide detailed information about the content, the knowledge that is required and the recommended literature.

Here you will find versions of the old and currently valid examination regulations in the download area. In the PO 2017 we show the module manuals for the studies directions - and specialisations separately. There are also separate module handbooks for the optional courses (WPF).

Please note: Courses are of course constantly updated and may therefore differ in details from the module manual.

If you would like to see the module handbooks from previous years, please contact the Office of the Dean. It must be mentioned here that module handbooks only became mandatory with the introduction to Bachelor's and Master's degrees. Therefore, they are not available for the Diploma Degree programmes.

Workshop Scientific Methods

The "Workshop Scientific Methods" is a kind of "container" that can be "filled" with different, individually selected events.

The various offerings accepted in the course of the Workshop Scientific Methods are divided into the block seminars offered by the Faculty 07 and the events accepted for the Workshop Scientific Methods, such as those of the HLL, Summer/Winter Academy and some compulsory optional courses.

Registration takes place via HiO as soon as the portal is open for the semester. Please note the enrolment periods stored in HIO.

An overview of the offered and accepted seminars as well as a schedule & room plan can be found in the pull-down menu on the right for the respective semester programmes
Publication Allocation of seminar places takes place in HiO.

The following courses of the Winter Academy 2024 (Registration & Info: Summer/Winter Academy) can be credited for the method seminars.

  • 19.02.2024: in German: Sketchnotes - komplexe Informationen leichter verstehen, länger merken, klarer kommunizieren

    21.02.2024: in German: Grundlagen der Gesprächsführung

    26.02.2024: in German: Sustainability


Please also check your status in HiO after the first allocation. The allocation takes place continuously throughout the semester, as places are always available.
registered = applied for seminar place
registered and admitted = seminar place received.

Please be sure to observe the following regulation: If you are assigned to a block seminar and do not participate in it without having deregistered via HiO at least 72 hours (3 days) in advance, you will be automatically excluded from all other seminars in this semester and placed on a blacklist!

Attendance at FB07 methods seminars will be noted on a list of participants and subsequently recorded in HiO. (Please allow a few days processing time after the end of the seminar)
For external seminars (summer/winter academy etc.) you will receive a certificate. Please note that you are responsible for keeping your certificates until they are posted, as it is often not possible to issue them later/again. Further info in the document Procedure & Event Offerings PO 2017

If you have achieved the required credit points for the module Method Seminars, please list all achievements that should lead to credit in the achievement overview for credit for the Method Seminar (routing slip). These will be reviewed by the Chair of the Examinations Board using HiO or other attached supporting documents. Afterwards, the methods seminar is booked as a whole in the examination office.
It is not possible to book partial points.
All necessary documents can be found in the download area on the right.

Seminar Final Thesis

The seminar final thesis is compulsory for all students of the Bachelor's degree programme. It is linked to the Bachelor's thesis and therefore cannot be brought forward to earlier semesters. Find out about the details of the implementation in the guidelines and register for it with the online form.
