# Bachelor degree programmes

In europe the bachelor is the
first academic degree, which students of universities can receive as
certificate of a scientific education. It has been introduced in the
context of the Bologna process with the goal of harmonising the
european study degrees. The bachelor degree programmes in Mathematics
at the TU-Berlin (Mathematics, Technomathematics and Mathematical
economics) are intended to take three years (six terms). The master
degree programmes, which replace the previous diploma programmes,
built upon the bachelor programmes and ehance them.

The
bachelor degree is the first degree in a multilevel model of studies,
having a general study time of 3 years (six terms). The tighter
structure of bachelor degree programmes has, among others, the
intention of shortening the overall study time. According to the usual
ECTS-scheme there are 180 credit points to be acquired during that
time, with one point representing a 30 hour workload of a student of
average aptitude and education. Considering a yearly holiday of six
weeks the resulting weekly workload is 40 hours. This includes
lectures, excercies, tutorials, and seminars, the time for their
preparation, the time for homework, written tests and other exams,
representing the entire time a student has to dedicate to the
studies.

The bachelor degree programme consists of modules,
that unite multiple courses having a common educational objective. The
module linear algebra for instance is composed of the courses linear
algebra I and linear algebra II.

At the department for
Mathematics at TU-Berlin the degree being awarded is the
"Bachelor of Science (B. Sc.)"
