## T Course Studienkolleg (Technical)

If you want to study engineering, technical courses in Germany or other related programs, this T Course (T Kurs) is the right one for you!

To participate in T Course (G Course, M Course, W Course) Studienkolleg of SID Institut, you are required to prove German language competence equivalent to B1 certificate (Telc, Goethe) or DSH 1. Then, we welcome every student participating in the Studienkolleg T courses of SID Institut, without requiring any entrance exam.

The T course at the SID Institute consists of mathematics, physics, and chemistry. The courses provide thorough instruction in the important methods and contents of various fields of science. The subjects are all taught in German and are intended to prepare the participants for the assessment test (feststellungsprüfung – FSP) at the university in Germany. The successful completion of the T course (T Kurs) in the Studienkolleg allows you to apply for most of the technical and engineering course in Germany, under certain conditions. In more detail, you need the Studienkolleg T Course if you want to be enrolled in one of the following degree programs:

- Physics
- Architecture
- Business Informatics
- Chemistry
- Civil Engineering
- Informatics
- Food Technology
- Process Technology
- Mathematics
- Metallurgy
- Electrical Engineering
- Statistics
- Geology
- Mechanical Engineering
- Ship Engineering
- Surveying
- Geography
- Landscape Conservation
- Sound and Video Engineering
- Materials Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Photo Engineering
- Supply Engineering
- Textile and Surface Design
- Production Engineering
- Clothing Engineering
- Environment Engineering
- Mineralogy
- Meteorology

After the preliminary course, a written exam will be administered. During the main course, intermediate examinations will be administered, and all the main courses end with final assessments in all the main subjects. The final examinations are based on the assessment exams FSP administered at the universities, and consequently an excellent preparation tool.

**(Applies for courses from 2020)**

**Mathematics Preliminary Course**

**Lesson hours:** 72

**Details:** The preliminary course should consolidate mathematical foundations and prepare students for the mathematics lessons of the main course. The course consists of elementary mathematics, quadratic equations, logarithms, and systems of linear equations. In analysis, derivatives, differentiation rules, whole and ruptured rational functions, exponential functions, and curves are covered. Additionally, analytic geometry is an important area, with vector algebra, plane equations, and scalar product.

**Mathematics Main Course**

**Lesson hours:** 96

**Details**: In mathematics, relevant topics are covered. These include curve discussion, extreme tasks, reconstruction tasks, integral calculus, and vector-level equations. Further topics include geometries and analysis of trigonometric functions.

**Physics Theory**

**Lesson hours:** 96

**Details**: In physics, mechanics is essential and covered extensively. Statics and strength theory, kinematics, and kinetics are covered. The course also covers impulse, force, Newtonian axioms, magnetic-electrical quantities, the Coulomb Law, electrical circuits, Ohm’s Law, and AC voltages. Optics radiation, atomic and nuclear physics are also of interest in the area of vibrations, waves, interference, types of radiation, and the interaction of radiation matter.

**Physics Exercise**

**Lesson hours:** 48

**Details**: Based on the physics theory the students are offered variety of relevant exercises in order to practice different problems.

**Chemistry**

**Lesson hours:** 96

**Details**: In chemistry, basics such as acids and bases, indicators, fields of physical chemistry, and organic chemistry are covered. Physical chemistry covers, among other things, energy conversion, reaction kinetics, and thermodynamics. Organic chemistry considers hydrocarbons, functional groups, and natural products.

**Informatics**

**Lesson hours:** 48

**Details**: Fundamental of basic informatics programming through an intensive crash course is included with this major as well.
