    Schedule and organisation

    The distance learning programme in Software Engineering is offered in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering (IESE). The Master's programme has a standard period of study of four semesters (part-time). Mandatory on-campus phases take place once per semester at IESE in Kaiserslautern. In general, there is a three-day on-campus phase from Friday to Sunday in the first semester and a one-week on-campus phase (from Saturday to Friday) in each of the second and third semesters. The written module examinations are completed during mandatory on-campus phases.
