Module boards

The module tables are a freely accessible information service of the TU Ilmenau. In them you will find detailed information (prior knowledge, learning objectives, concrete contents, course responsible, credit points, literature, etc.) on the individual courses.


Moodle is the e-learning platform of the TU Ilmenau. On this platform the lecturers create courses for the current semester. In these courses, learning materials, learning activities as well as semester- and course-specific information are made available to the students.

In the course of the restructuring and as an instrument of quality assurance, three subject committees were formed in March 2017, which are oriented towards the examination committees of the faculties.

German as a Foreign Language | English and Russian | Romance Languages

Further and detailed information on the individual subject committees, their tasks, chairpersons, members and contact details can be found on the university intranet.
