Preliminary courses start in September

The Fachgruppe Informatik (FIUS) offers preperatory courses for Java and Theoretical Computer Science at the beginning of October.

Independently of this, the MINT-Kolleg Baden-Württemberg prepares students for academic training as early as September: Pre-courses for students of the first semester at the MINT-Kolleg refresh existing school knowledge and prepare prospective female and male students for academic training at the University of Stuttgart. The desired side effect is that participants get to know each other better, can initiate study groups and familiarize themselves with the campus.

Registration is underway. Further information on course content and dates is available on a comprehensive information page.
