Kick off your studies

Welcome to the Department of Computer and Information Science

Introductory events at the Department

We highly recommend you to visit our introductory events for new master students. We will present important information about the study programme and you get a first impression about the department and your future fellow students before the start of the lecture period.

The presentation of the master's introductory event will be available on the links and downloads  page after the event date. However, we would like to point out that the uploaded slides are not a substitute for a personal participation, as much information is given additionally.

Furthermore our lecture series take part each winter term.  All research groups of the department give short presentations to introduce themselves, their research activities and projects to our new students. Don't miss the chance to learn more about your opportunities here at our department.
