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 Monday, 19th October to Monday, 2nd November.

The event is separated into a pre-program from 19th October and the main program from 29th October and will mainly take place online due to Corona. The exceptions are a city rallye 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, which we will provide for you. The SET do not require registration for the digital events. For the pre-program from 19.10. and the city rallye, registration is required to avoid large crowds. LINK TO THE REGISTRATION FORM:  

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.
