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 20/21 will take place from Thursday, October 19 to Monday, November 2.
The event is separated into a pre-program from October 19 and the main program from October 29 and will mainly take place online due to Corona. The exceptions are a city rally and campus tours in small groups. For a smooth start into your studies, participation in the SET is highly recommended. We are not deterred by the major pandemic and have considered numerous events as a replacement for the regular SETs, which can either take place online or in compliance with security restrictions. Additionally, there is a lot of information material on our YouTube channel (link will follow), which we will provide for you.

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.
