It is intended to contribute to the further development of higher education in Germany and to support the implementation of Bachelor s and Master s degree courses at universities and Fachhochschulen (universities of applied sciences) within the framework of the Bologna process throughout Europe. It is based on the following principles: * Profiles according to the resolution of the standing conference of the ministers of education of the Länder of October 10, Ländergemeinsame Strukturvorgaben gemäß 9 Abs. 2 HRG für die Akkreditierung von Bachelor- und Master- Studiengängen

4 2 Qualification Frames and Curricula for Degree Courses for Process Engineering, 1. In accordance with the European organisational stipulations 1 differing profiles are to be possible in Bachelor s degree courses. According to the decision of the Accreditation Council 2 the profiles are more research-oriented or more application-oriented. 2. The profile of competence of the more application-oriented Bachelor s degree must be equivalent to the Diplom awarded by the Fachhochschulen (universities of applied science) in the past. 3. The profile of competence of the more application-oriented Master s degree must be equivalent to the Diplom awarded by the universities in the past. 4. For the Fachhochschulen (universities of applied science) the standard degree conferred is the Bachelor s degree. Most graduates leave the Fachhochschule (university of applied science) with a Bachelor s degree. 5. For universities the standard degree conferred is the Master s degree, and most students leave the university with a Master s degree at least. 6. The completion of a more research-oriented Bachelor s degree is in particular a qualification for further education in the same or other disciplines. 7. The Master s degree resulting from a more application-oriented degree course gives evidence of a new profile of competence for which there are no previous equivalents. 8. The transition from a more application-oriented to a more research-oriented degree course should be facilitated by appropriate measures. 9. If Bachelor s and Master s degree courses are completed in sequence the appropiate standard period of time for the completion of the courses should be ten semesters. 10. Graduates who have completed Bachelor s degree courses are Ingenieure (engineers) in the sense in which the Laws on Engineers of the German Länder are to be interpreted. The qualification framework and curricula described in the following text are recommendations for the development of more research-oriented Bachelor s and Master s degree courses at universities and more application-oriented Bachelor s and Master s degree courses at Fachhochschulen (universities of applied science) in the fields of: * profile designation with reference to the resolution of the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Länder in the Federal Republic of Germany of 10 October 2003, Structural guidelines common to the Länder as set out in Article 9 Clause 2 of the Framework Act of Higher Education (HRG) for the accreditation of Bachelor s and Master s study courses 1 Realising the European Higher Education Area, Communiqué of the Conference of Ministers responsible for Higher Education in Berlin on 19 September Resolution of the Accreditiation Council of June 20, 2005

5 Qualification Frames and Curricula for Degree Courses for Process Engineering, Process Engineering (Verfahrenstechnik), Chemical Engineering (Chemieingenieurwesen), Biomolecular or Bioprocess Engineering (Bioingenieurwesen) and other related fields. The recommendations for the curricula are formulated in broad enough terms to cover the aforementioned degree courses. The recommendations are structured as follows: 1. Professional profile and qualification framework. 2. Qualifications for admission to the course. 3. Structure of the degree course. 4. Contents of the degree course. An important characteristic of engineering degree courses are the industrial placements which are completed before starting the course and during the course, preferably in industry. This gives the students a chance to see what working in industry is like, acquire practical experience of dealing with machines and apparatus and get a clear picture of what an engineer really has to do. Information on the profile of the industrial placements which are adapted to the needs of each individual degree course is available in the section structure of the degree course. Information about the aims of the industrial placements and the preferred positions is available in the appendix. The recommendations assume that the degree courses are organised in modules. A module is a teaching or learning unit which is normally completed in one semester and an examination is taken at the end. Those who pass obtain credits according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). One credit point corresponds to a student workload of 30 hours. One assumes that an average student will have a workload of 900 hours per semester. Whether the Bachelor s and Master s degree courses are successful or not with regard to the profile building aims aforementioned must be monitored, safeguarded and improved by the consistent use of quality management systems.
