What is the language of instruction? What level of German do I need to follow along with the seminar?

How many ECTS points can be given for the different degree programs?
Usually students receive 12 credit points for the Innovation Workshop. This is the case for WiIng students, for example. They take the Innovation Workshop in the semi-elective area. IME students can have the Innovation Workshop counted as the equivalent to the Venture Campus (6 ECTS) or Technology Venturing Group Project (5 ECTS). All other degree programs: Please discuss with your Examinations Office how the Innovation Workshop will be counted. Of course you can have the Innovation Workshop counted at any time in your free electives area or as an additional subject.

That is unfortunately not possible. The application and participation must be for one event.
When are the applicants notified of acceptance/rejection?
The participants are selected directly after the application deadline. Usually it takes three business days.
