Orientation for freshmen

Canteen, Campus, Timetable

With our "First Semester Information", we answer the most important questions about studying and starting at the Department of Computer Science. In addition, we recommend the university's introductory events from Monday, October 10 to Sunday, October 16.

Further support for the first days at the university is available from the Fachgruppe Informatik (FIUS).

Preliminary courses start in September

The Fachgruppe Informatik (FIUS) offers preliminary 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: The preliminary courses of the MINT-Kolleg Baden-Württemberg 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.
