Welcome to the Institute of Computer Science!

In order to facilitate the start of your studies, we offer a few introductory events at the beginning of each semester. In addition, we would like to provide some important information on this page to help you find your way around the structure of the Master's program.

Introductory events

At the beginning of each semester, the Student Advisory Service of the Institute of Computer Science offers an introductory course. In this course, the structure of the study programme is presented and further important information about the course of studies is given.

After the introductory session usually a poster session takes place at the Institute of Computer Science. During the poster session, the specializations as well as the research groups of the institute introduce themselves. Due to the corona pandemic, this event cannot take place in 2020. As a substitute, an attempt will be made to offer a virtual event in which the specializations will be presented.

In the first weeks of the semester, further informal information meetings are held in which students can ask questions that have arisen during the beginning of the semester.

The dates of the current introductory events are as follows. The events are held online, for further information please see Stud.IP: *The "Study Guidance" meeting is offered twice so that students can choose one of the two dates. The contents of the two meetings are identical.

Important documents

Important documents such as the Master's first semester booklet, templates for study plans and a list of recommended courses in the first semester will be available via the community forum: Freshmen MSc Computer Science in Stud.IP.

International students

For (new) international students the International Office of the Faculty organizes numerous events such as a campus tour, international dinner, etc.

There is also a welcome video on the website and the opportunity to network with other international students.
