Orientation Program Master's

Winter Semester 2022

The orientation program will probably take place partly online and partly in presence, as soon as more information about the individual events are fixed, they will be published here or on the given pages.

The program consists of a beginners' café, the Study Introduction Days (SET) and the presentation of the examination regulations (FPSO).

At the IT Service Center you can find information and events about IT at the TUM .

The dates, times and links can always change at short notice, so check the program again shortly before the events!

In a relaxed atmosphere, our study advisors Sandra Kemler, Imme Proske, Vivija Simić, Sibylle Roden-Kinghorst and Lena Krone will answer all your questions about your upcoming studies and give you tips for a successful study. So please feel free to bring a cup of coffee or tea and maybe some cookies in front of the screen.

Please have a look at the "Important Links" further down on this page. We will not go through all the pages with you, but we will answer your questions and address the most important points for starting your studies!

The event will presumably take place as a zoom webinar begin / mid October.

We look forward to your participation!

No registration is required.

In October, the Study Introductory Days (SET) of the Student Council (Fachschaft) will take place. In numerous events you will be welcomed by the deans, get an introduction to the university IT and the opportunity to get to know other freshmen.

More information, dates and links can be found on the student council's page.

The Examination Regulations (FPSO) are (together with the APSO, see "Important Links") the contract you signed with the university at the time of enrolment. It is very important that you are familiar with the contents of these regulations.

Presumably on Monday, October 17, 2022 there will be a presentation of the current examination regulations of each study program and the most important contact persons of the faculty. No registration is required, but this is an official event of the faculty and we expect all master's beginners to join this important event!

For each study programme the access data for the virtual events will be announced here soon. In some study programs you will have to watch a video or read the slides before the event. In every case it is helpful if you have a look at your sepcific examination regulations before you head to the event. You can find the links here on this page.
