Analysis of Curriculum for TUM Informatics

Hi Guys,

I was going through TUM application procedure. They have an excel sheet for filling the academic details according to ECTS. Now the problem is I am from VTU and our university uses % grading. I am not sure how to fill this analysis of curriculum. I would really apreciate it if anyone could give me an idea about it.

Thanks
Vinay

I did the same some two years back but the file was not manipulated at that time like this one. It has mentioned clearly. Just fill the cells in grey. The white cells will be manipulated automatically with the details that you give in the grey cells.

My question is, doesn't every course has a credit value even though the grading is in % instead of GPA? Check it out once. It might be in your transcript.

If not, just go to your university website and open the syllabus of your department for each semester. Just check the value under Teaching hours / week for each and every subject that you did in your Undergrad in each semester. That value represents the credit value.

If still you have some doubt, this might help you but I would suggest you to go with the above said. Just calculate how many classes did you attend for a course in a week. If you count to 4 classes/week for a course then its a 4 credit course. Similarly for 3,2 and 1 classes/week. Lab accounts to 3 credit. I don't remember about the project.

So taking this into account, you need to fill course name(s) that fall under each section and the credits accordingly.

I am facing problem too, trying to understand the instructions. For the point (3) Noten/Grades, are we supposed to enter only those subjects that show the best of our results. To be exact, if I count all the credits for the 4 yr in college it sums up to 221 (hope this is not a weird).
So now for the point 3, am I to pick the subjects where I got the best scores, summing upto 120 points?

Yes, not best results exactly, rather the courses that matches best with the program that you intend to apply. In case of Informatics, you need to list CS related courses. One point to be noted here is that, it states 120 ECTS and not 120 credit points of your university. Also, they have mentioned "or" 2/3 or the examinations required for the study program.

ECTS and our credit system are different. So don't take this in to consideration.

AFAIK, we generally do some programming courses like C, C++ during the first year. Account them. From second year, you would have selected electives. If they were not related to CS drop them. Account every other course you did. Do the same for all the years of study and that would suffice.

If you want the 2/3 value of your total credits, scroll to cell #C22. That number will let you know how many courses you need to list if you don't want to list everything. So you can decide the courses to list accordingly that will finally account to that value in C22.

Yes, I had ~260 credits if I remember is right. 221 is not weird. Just make sure that you count all your subjects and the credits properly. Don't miss anything.

P.S: I feel 221 is a bit low. Just verify it once again. I may be wrong!

P.P.S: Add about the universities that you have applied in the misc. details section in your infobank. If you have applied to the universities in the US, list them using the usual method in infobank.

ATB!

I am also doing the same thing. In fact I hadn't sent it to the university. They asked me to send again. Their online application portal is anyway last decade. This process feels like cancer but have to do it, for good job opportunities and no tuition in Europe. I just wish I at least get fee waiver from my NL/FR accepts and I don't have to go to a German university. I mean the kind of pedantic bureaucratic process they ask for scares the *word censored by forum* out of me as in what their processes on campus will be. Besides their fascination with "score" just like Indian profs/teachers and schools.

And you have to send this document in print "By post" when even third world universities are moving to paperless or almost paperless application! That takes the cake!

Oh your question: Click on the blue course links. See if it matches any of your course(s) and if so just list those courses in the next column and then enter credit in next column. Credit is given as credit hour in your syllabus. Pick the name and credits from your transcripts as that is what they might match it against, if at all. (though I have serious doubts they will read this document).

  • Do not really fancy rankings as long the programme is well rounded.
  • Will try and go for PhD after MS.
  • Hence, leaning towards funded/partially funded programmes - or the ones with options of scholarship.

This document is pretty important. This is the only document through which they compare your Indian grade to German equivalent. This part is important because they will get to know whether you have satisfied the study requirements as well as your grade in the subjects that Matter!!

Thanks.

Yeah I'm sending it. Basically my qualms were the cumbersome steps in application process. Unlike any other applications I've made in the US or EU. Also their fetish for scores. I mean they even want school scores and actually decide applications based on that.

But even then they could have just asked me to email or upload that excel sheet. I can get their requirements for various score cards and such excel sheets but doing things in hard copy is pure regressive.

They need students with over all good profile. So they will check your entire profile ( your grades, GRE, IELTS, Essay, motivation letter). I suggest, make sure you look good in all fronts.

Checking for school scores (10/12) is definitely not the way to look for good students at masters level. No one else in the world is doing that. Not Standford, not Oxford, or not even most of the European or Asian universities do that. Also GRE is a test that does anything but testing goodness/preparedness of a candidate for higher education. It's one of the worst examples of how higher education application system is screwed.

I can understand emphasis on UG scores as it directly affects the PG, or even candiate work experience, research profile but 10/12 scores and GRE are plain ridiculous.

Having said that I know I like it or not, I have to do it. My GRE score is good as in my Quant is 165/170 (they explitly said verbal score won't be considred, hope they meant that Razz), UG score is good too if not excellent, essay and SOP are decent I guess. I have sent school scores too (reluctantly as my 12th scores are plain bad at 72% CBSE and I have year gaps after 12th so yeah I don't really have much hope and I don't think I will apply to any other universitiy that asks for 10-12th scores, not in protest but mostly becaause it will greatly reduce my chances).

Thanks a lot and please ignore my rants Smile
