Scripts for each experiment are located on the SRS homepage. Those have to be worked through until the attestation date as they are the basis for the attestation.


You have to succeed one central attestation for the experiments in System Dynamics and one central attestation for the experiment in Control Engineering in order to participate at the labs. The attestations are only offered at the a.m. dates. Participation at the labs without a successfully passed attestation is not possible.


The mandatory registration at the examination office has to be realized in the 5th and 6th week of the past summer semester. This registration is valid also for the lab of Control Engineering in the current winter term. An anew registration in the winter term is neither necessary nor possible. ONLY officially registered participants are allowed to take part in the attestation.

A deregistration is only possible via email to praktikum-srs@uni-due.de latest 1 week (full 7 days) before the attestation date. Nonappearance leads to the grading fail for all three experiments. After participation at the attestation a deregistration from the entire practical exercise is not possible.

Realization of labs

The experiments are held in English language.

The participants are grouped in teams of 5 students and assigned to fixed lab dates. A central date exchange service by the chair will not be provided, but a change-of-dates-forum is arranged in moodle (Systemdynamik und Regelungstechnik – Pflichtpraktikum (WiSe 19/20)). The participants are allowed to switch their dates with another accepted student on their own risk. If the switching party does not participate, the original advised student loses the right to participate. The doctoral candidate conducting the lab has to be informed at the beginning of the experiment about a date’s switch. All participants will be checked if their participation is accepted. Not accepted students are not allowed to take part.

Grading / fail

Your performance will be graded:

Criteria Grade
- All attestations (SDe, CE) were successful
  at the first attempt and
- Active participation at the lab.
- One attestation failed once and successfully
  passed in the second attempt or
- Passed attestations but no active
  participation at the lab.
- Two attestations failed, or
- Nonappearance/delay.
5,0 (failed)

Grading with 5,0 (failed), all experiments and the attestations have to be repeated. Grades will be reported to the examination office like other examination results.
The experiments have to be completed within one calendar year (in the sequence System Dynamics – Control Engineering). Single labs of earlier terms expire. Grades are 1,0 or 3,0, or all experiments have to be repeated completely.

The pass of the practical exercise is connected with:

  1. Attestation: Each participant has to succeed the central written attestations for the experiments in order to participate at the labs.
  2. Verification of identity: Participation at the attestation is only possible if your identity can be verified. For verification of your identity you have to show your Student-ID, or your passport, or your Aufenthaltstitel at the attestation date and in the beginning of the labs. If the ID cannot be accepted or is not correct, the student loses the right to participate.
  3. Presence: The exercise starts exactly at the announced time. Participants who are not present until 5 minutes after start of the exercise will be graded as being “not present”, regardless of reasons. Nonappearance leads to the grading fail for all three experiments.
  4. Active participation at the practical experiment.

Further information It is strongly recommended to conduct the experiments in the proposed order and terms because failed attempts lead to worse grades or failed trials.
