Oral exams at the end of the summer term 2014:


Exams with Dr.-Ing. Stefan Steidl:

  • Appointments are available on Monday, July 21, 2014, and Wednesday, July 23, 2014.
  • The exams will take place in room 'Übung 3 / 01.252-128', Cauerstr. 11, 91058 Erlangen.
    That's in the new computer science building due to construction work in the old one.
  • If the number of participants is less than 19, these will be the only two days.
  • You can make appointments in the last week of the summer term (July 7-11, 2014).
    Please come to my office or send me an e-mail during this period.
Exams with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Joachim Hornegger:
  • There is no decision on the examination days so far. Please be patient.
  • Time slots with Prof. Hornegger are very limited and students of Pattern Analysis have priority.
  • Probably all Pattern Recognition exams are with Dr. Steidl - even if you have registered for an exam with Prof. Hornegger in meinCampus.















In general (with a few exceptions), you have to register for the exam in meinCampus.

In most cases (depending on the field of study), you have two options:

  1. 5.0 ECTS based on the topics of the lecture
  2. 7.5 ECTS based on the topics of the lecture and the exercises including MatLab programming

All exams will be oral and will take 30 minutes regardless of the number of credit points.


You can register with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Joachim Hornegger or with Dr.-Ing. Stefan Steidl.
The exams will cover the same topics (course Pattern Recognition of the winter term 2013/14)

In both cases, you have to make an appointment to get the exact date and time of the exam.
Please note that it will cause significant circumstances if you cancel your appointment again.
As long as you don't have an appointment, you can cancel your exam in meinCampus without any problems.
If you want to, you can take the exam at the end of the upcoming summer term, too;
in this case you should cancel your meinCampus registration now and register again for the summer term.


If you pass the exam but you are not satisfied with your grade, there is no possibility to take the exam again.
Please make sure that you have enough time for preparation for the exam before making an appointment.
