Programme information

The XtAI course offers a variety of modules on AI, machine learning and 3D interfaces, in which both the theoretical basics and current application scenarios of state-of-the-art AI and XR methods are taught. The course is divided into mandatory and elective area, followed by thesis and thesis defence, with students needing to achieve a total of 120 ECTS credits for the course completion. Each module provides a specied number of ECTS credits upon successful completion. Students are free to choose modules from the elective area, so that modules of interest can be attended. Students must achieve 60 ECTS credits in total in the elective area through the selected modules. The Master's programme XtAI has a standard period of study of 4 semesters.

The module distribution required to complete the XtAI course, as well as detailed information on the available modules in each area are listed below.

We have also compiled a few suggestions on how a full Master's course may be constructed from these lectures under course schedules.

Area   ECTS
Mandatory courses 35  
    AI&XR Labs   25
    Introduction in AI   5
    Machine Learning   5
Mandatory Electives 55  
    AI&XR Seminars   5-10
    Core AI Methods   10-35
    Core XR Methods   10-20
    AI&XR Applications & Technologies   10-25
Abschlussbereich 30  
    Thesis and Defense   25+5
  total 120

In the elective area, students are able to choose their lectures from several sub-areas. For each sub-area, a minimum number of ECTS credits is required to obtain the degree. Additionally, students may only aquire a certain amount of ECTS credits from each sub-area.

Control Examination (KOP)

The control examination (KOP) is a check introduced in the new AI&XR programme version. In your first semester you must pass at least either the mandatory Introduction to AI or the Machine Learning course or you are considered to have failed the programme once. You can try again in your second semester, after that you will be dis-enroled from the programme.

In total you have six attempts (for each of the two courses: main exam at the end of the lecture period in the first semester, re-exam at the start of the lecture period in the second semester and an additional exam at the end of the lecture period in the second semester) to pass the control examination.

This module contains projects, cooperations and talks on interesting topics: The minimum number of ECTS credits to be achieved is 30.
