Courses given at the Chair of Structural Analysis

In the mission statement "excellence in teaching and learning at TUM", the culture of teaching at learning at TUM is defined. In accordance with this and the TUM teaching constitution, a broad variety of courses is offered at the chair of structural analysis. The fundamentals of structural analysis are accomplished in an active learning environment in lectures, interdisciplinary courses and online courses. Digital tools are well-integrated in both lectures and self-study. With the help of simulations and remote labs, the students can explore complex environments and gain practical experiences beyond the lecture timeframes. Conventional as well as electronic and interactive teaching and learning material - including videos - support the self-study phases.

Exams at the Chair of Structural Analysis

Exams are designed to document the students' skills acquisition. The exam questions follow the principles of constructive alignment.

The exams in the Bachelor studies as well as the exams in Theory of Plates, Theory of Shells and Finite Element Methods take place during the examination period of the Faculty.


Non-compulsory courses in the Master usually have their exams directly after the end of the lectures' period.

For all exams the dates published by the examination office are mandatory without exceptions.

It is only possible to write the exams at the Technical University of Munich. This means, exams are not sent to other universities. Please be aware of this prerequisite when planing studies abroad or an internship.

Information for exchange and guest students:

Special arrangements concerning examination dates and procedures at TUM cannot be made for exchange or guest students! You must comply with officially scheduled exam dates and times. Examination dates are set by each TUM school or department and are usually scheduled to take place between February and March (winter-term) and between July and September (summer-term). The Chair of Structural Analysis offers retake exams for compulsory courses exclusively in the official exam period for the next semester. There is no demand on retake exams for elective courses.
