The Study Introduction Days

The MPI (Mathematics, Physics, Informatics) Departmental Student Council holds an introductory event at the beginning of each semester for new first-year students (Bachelor and Master), called Study Introduction Days (SET). The SET for the winter semester 21 will take place from Thursday, 14th October until Monday, 18th October. We are currently planing to make a hybrid SET, with digital formats as well as events taking place at the campus. Additionally, we have preevents starting from Sunday, 10th October. Please only register for a single slot, the preliminary program is on every day at every time exactly the same.

Registration: You do not need to register for SET in general, however individual events may require registrations due to a capacity limit. If this is the case, it will be posted here on this page, we will update the information regularly.

The registration will be opened 5th of october at 10am under

If the registration for events is full, there is unfortunately no possibility to still participate.
However, places may become available again due to cancellations.

Discord: To allow communication with your classmates outside of the normal program on-site, we have a Discord for getting to know each other, where we also communicate changes to the program in addition to this page. Have a look and say hi:

We also created a freshman´s guide. You find the English version here, the German version here.

Important and up-to-date information about the Corona virus regarding the university can be found on the specifically created websites of TUM, and the departments Mathematics, Physics and Informatics.
