Pr ob l e m e b e i d e r Ei n f ü hr u n g d e s D i p l om a S u p p l e m e n t s i n d e r H oc hs c hu l e Die Probleme bei der Erstellung v on Diploma Supplements betreffen sehr unterschiedliche Aspekte dieser Aufgabe. Am häufigsten werden mangelnde personelle K apazitäten genannt (32,0 % aller N ennungen). Es folgen Probleme bei der Erstellung der Inhalte (25,7%). An dritter und v ierter Stelle folgen EDV-technische Probleme, zum einen mit der Software zur Erstellung v on Diploma Supplements selbst (13,7%), zum anderen mit deren Anbindung an die Studierenden- und Prüfungsv erwaltung (12,9 %).
Probleme bei der fachbereichs- bzw. fakultätsübergreifenden Prüfungsv erwaltung, die technischer oder organisatorischer N atur sein können, werden nur selten genannt (4,1%).
Die sonstigen Probleme betreffen zu etwa gleichen T eilen organisatorische und EDV-technische Probleme sowie Schwierigkeiten bei der Erstellung der Inhalte. F ünf H ochschulen beklagen die schwierige K oM a t e r ia lie n u n d A r b e it s h ilfe n 2 71 operation mit den F akultäten/F achbereichen bzw. den Studiengängen.
Ebenso v iele Anmerkungen betreffen Probleme bei der Übersetzung der Inhalte in die F remdsprache, zumeist Englisch.
F a z it Auf dem Weg zur automatischen und kostenfreien Ausstellung v on Diploma Supplements für alle Absolv entinnen und Absolv enten liegen v or den meisten H ochschulen noch beträchtliche Aufgaben. Die Erfahrungen der H ochschulen zeigen, dass die H erausforderungen nicht allein in der T echnik liegen. Vielmehr zeigen die Erfahrungen, dass insbesondere die Erstellung und Abstimmung der Inhalte ebenfalls nicht leicht zu lösen sind. Umso wichtiger erscheint es, durch eine - häufig schon praktizierte zentrale K oordination Mittel und Wege zu finden, durch Z usammenarbeit aller Beteiligten effiziente und q ualitativ zufrieden stellende O rganisationsstrukturen und Abläufe zu finden. Die Dokumentation und Präsentation v on Diploma Supplements, aber auch v on Prozessen zu ihrer Einführung und Erstellung, während der T agungsreihe der Serv ice-Stelle sowie in diesem Band leistet einen Beitrag dazu.

4. 2 P rogramme R equirements T he M aster’ s P rogramme in B usiness A dministration and E ngineering is geared to broadening and enriching the competence of students with an undergraduate degree in v arious fields of engineering or in industrial engineering and management. G raduates of the programme should be able to apply research findings in the fields of engineering and economics to management task s in firms operating in an international env ironment.
T he strength of the program lies in the intensiv e dialog with business and industry and is designed to enable engineers and other professionals currently engaged in full-time employ ment to study on a part-time basis.
T his, howev er, requires a high degree of responsibility and self-discipline on the part of the students in addition to the appropriate aptitude.
T he main goal of the program is to integrate engineering with business administration and management, thus enabling graduates to tak e a holistic approach to analy sing and ev aluating complex situations and dev ising appropriate processes and structures.
I n addition to professional sk ills, M aster’ s program also dev elops the social competence as well as the cooperation and communication sk ills needed to work successfully in teams and to lead teams.

I f failed or incomplete, each module may be repeated twice. T he abov e modules form a foundation for the subsequent main studies program.
T he main studies program is made up of 1 2 modules with 6 0 E C T S credits which are also each completed by a final examination. I f failed or incomplete, each module may be repeated twice. Upon study ing regularly according to the stipulations of the course regulations, the student has an additional attempt to complete a particular module in this program. B esides the compulsory modules B usiness M anagement (inc. business game) and B alance S heet A naly sis/ C ontrolling, the student has to select from the catalogue two main options consisting of three modules each.
M oreov er, the student has to choose two compulsory modules from a special catalogue as well as two additional electiv e modules. T he additional electiv e modules of at least 5 E C T S credits each can be selected from the faculty course catalogue or from the course catalogues of other faculties of the univ ersity. T he entire study program is completed with an honours proj ect and an oral examination on this proj ect (3 0 E C T S credits).

4. 2 P rogramme R equirements T he B achelor P rogram graduates students as a B iotechnologist with broad theoretical and practical k nowledge and capabilities of basic principles in (natural) science and modern areas of B iotechnology. T herefore, a lab course belongs to nearly ev ery topic in the curriculum and scientific publication sk ills are continuously trained throughout the study.
I n the first three semesters the program has a strong focus on mathematics, phy sics, inorganic chemistry, organic and phy sical chemistry, and on cell biology, microbiology and biochemistry. T he curriculum is supplemented by basics in computer science, business management and scientific E nglish. T echnical microbiology, molecular biology, bioinformatics and bionengineering are the main topics of the 4 th semester. A n essential part of B achelor study play s the so called practical semester (5 th semester, work experience term), where students hav e to stay for 2 0 week s outside the univ ersity in research institutes or companies preferably to work on an own proj ect which has to be completed by a written scientific report and presented in an official colloquium at univ ersity. T o further promote this k ind of independent lab work a small proj ect in the research area of one of the faculty members is part of 6 th semester curriculum.
S tudents present their results in a poster session. A dditionally, the 6 th semester offers lectures and lab courses e. g. in gene technology, special biotechnology law and down stream processing and optional subj ects lik e immunochemistry, technology of cell culture or biotechnology of microalgae. T he B achelor study will be completed by an experimental thesis of at least 4 month duration abd its presentation in a colloquium.

4. 2 P rogramme R equirements During the training, the phy sics students hav e to acquire broad k nowledge of E xperimental and T heoretical P hy sics as well as fundamental k nowledge of mathematics. T he deep understanding of scientific concepts and the ability to dev elop further academically is most important. T he training of phy sicists is not geared to a high lev el of specialisation; it is meant to prov ide professional sk ills to solv e complex problems.
T he study programme is structured into three interrelated parts:
(i) S y stematic study of basic scientific elements cov ers the first three y ears. I n includes intensiv e courses in M athematics (L inear A lgebra, A naly sis), T heoretical P hy sics (C lassical P hy sics, Quantum T heory, S tatistical P hy sics), E xperimental P hy sics (B asic L ectures with E xperiments, L aboratory C ourses, adv anced L ectures on S olid S tate P hy sics, A tomic and M olecular P hy sics, N uclear and P article P hy sics and Quantum O ptics) and an E lectiv e S ubj ect (to be chosen from C hemistry, E lectrical E ngineering, M echanical E ngineering, C omputer S cience, M eteorology or C omplex A naly sis).
(ii) A dv anced study of selected topics is scheduled for the fourth y ear.
S tudents broaden and deepen their k nowledge and understanding in basic phy sics, applied phy sics and topics outside phy sics in lectures, seminars and adv anced laboratory courses.
(iii) R esearch training with thesis is carried out during the entire final y ear. S tudents are integrated in one of the institutes of the Faculty of P hy sics or its associated institutes in a research group that work s on, for example S pectroscopy and G rav itational W av es or P lasma P hy sics or A tomic P rocesses or E xperimental S olid S tate P hy sics in the field of S urface P hy sics and N anostructures or Quantum O ptics or T heoretical N uclear and P article P hy sics or T heoretical M atter P hy sics or T heoretical Quantum O ptics.
