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 Study Introduction Days of the winter semester 2019/20 will take place at the Garching campus from Thursday October 10th till October 14th, right before the lecture period. Participating in SET will assist you in a smooth start of your studies.
The Technical University of Munich will be introduced, exam regulations will be presented, we’ll have a short campus tour and a few more fun activities. You will also get to know many new people, possibly make new friends and receive a head start before the official lecture period.

Registration for the SET is not necessary.

For questions on the program or your start of studies, mail us:
