Examination modalities

The exam in road design and construction includes a theory part and a calculation part. In order to pass the exam, both parts must be successfully completed. If one part is negative, the entire exam (theory part and calculation part) must be repeated.

During the first part (theory part, duration: 1 hour) no tools (no formula collection, no pocket calculator) are allowed.

During the second part (calculation part, duration: 2 hours), which will be worked on after the first part has been collected, only the formula collections handed out by the institute and non-programmable pocket calculators are allowed to be used.
