The Master curriculum consists of mandatory core modules (Pflichtmodule) which are recommended to be taken in the first term. The skills from these classes are deepened and expanded in two study projects (Studienprojekte) in the second an third term. Furthermore a large number of choice modules complementing the mandatory core courses allows for a specialization according to the individual desires. The core modules are separated in three categories:
And finally in the fourth semester the Master's Thesis is part of the curriculum. The thesis is accompanied by a mandatory master colloquium which takes place in the third term and prepares the master thesis in providing research methods, guidance on writing the thesis exposé etc.
The total workload of the program are 120 ECTS, 30 per term (ECTS is European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System http://ec.europa.eu/education/lifelong-learning-policy/ects_en.htm). One ECTS credit in general represents 30 working hours per term. This means if you have a class with 3 ECTS you have to expect a workload of about 90 working hours. This workload is detailed for each class in the respective module description, for example the break down in amount of time for in class meetings/lecture, preparations before and after classes, preparation time for exams…

Some recommendation for liberals/free choice modules and experiences from other MEP students. Liberals can be taken at any university in Berlin or also elsewhere. You have to clarify directly with the professors/lecturers of the courses that you want to take if there is space available and what the requirements for participation (exams etc.) are. In total 18 credits of liberals have to be taken.

This is a list of master theses that have been completed in the last years. For topics the master thesis colloquium will provide room for discussion with professors on possible topics for example related to ongoing research projects.
ISIS (Information System for Instructors and Students) is the eLearning platform at TU Berlin. You can log in to ISIS via your general tubit account at http://www.isis.tu-berlin.de. ISIS is used by most professors and lecturers to provide materials, readings and other information relevant to a course. You can search for your course or browse through the schools and departments where all courses are listed. In general you need a password to access the course information. The password will normally be provided in the first class of a course.
QISPOS is the TU Berlin online system for registration for exams. In general you can register online for all core (Pflicht) and core elective (Wahlpflicht) courses. Free electives (Wahl) in general have to be registered in person at the examination office with Mrs. Schubert.
You can access QISPOS via your tubit account. In your personal portal you will see the option „Studierendendaten“ on the left side. After entering a TAN you will see the QISPOS start page. More information on the process of registering for exams is provided in this documentation.
The list is a collection of some standard literature which can be helpful for you as you get prepared for the classes in the first semester, in particular if you have no or few pre-knowledge and experience in these fields. However, there is clearly no requirement to have read them but it is meant as a service for you.
