On Monday, March 8th, 2021 at 9:00am (CEST) there will be an online introduction given by the administration of our university.
Following the central introduction, there will be a special welcome session for students of "Industrial Informatics" at 10:00am (CEST), in which we will provide you with information specific to your chosen study programme. This will be a more personal meeting with time to answer your specific questions as well.

We would also like to call your attention to the German course that is offered prior to the start of each semester. You will need to be proactive here before the semester even starts!! Link to the offerings of the International Office
Courses will start on March 15th, 2021. Please check the time table for detailed information (Section: Studierendenset/Technik E&I).
To take part in the online sessions you will need access to the different university computer systems. Please make sure that you have received your login credentials in advance. If you have not received your login credentials in advance please use the process described by the Computer Center under "University Login" in the section on Corona to request for access.
Remarks related to the current COVID-19 pandemic
For the coming summer term 2021 most of our course offerings will use an online format.
If you are currently not living in Germany please check whether the current regulations allow you to travel to Germany! You can request support from our International Office (see link above).
You are permitted to start your studies online in your home country regardless of whether you can or want to travel to Germany. But please consider the implications of time zone differences if you will not be situated in Germany.
All lecturers have been requested to provide recordings of their online lectures, but there is no guarantee that all lectures will be made available as separate recordings. Please take this into consideration in your decision.
Student projects, which make up a third of the first two semesters, are normally carried out in cooperation with local industry partners or on campus in our research labs. These projects require a completely different approach in the current situation. If you do not or can not relocate to Germany for the start of your studies, we will work with you to try and find an industry partner in your home country from our network of industrial partners. However, we cannot guarantee, that we will always be able to find an adequate industrial partner in your vicinity.
As this is a very special situation we all have to deal with, please contact our student counselling service, if you have any remaining questions.
