Teaching WT 2020/2021

 

Information for first term Bachelor students at the Faculty of Engineering

At the Faculty of Engineering, the lecture period for WS 2020/2021 begins on November 2, 2020.

The first semester was planned in such a way that all courses (lectures and exercises) at the Faculty of Engineering can be taken online
We do recommend taking the Systems Design Project, which is planned for the first semester according to the curriculum, only if you can be present on site, as practical work in small groups is required here. If this is not possible for you, we would recommend to postpone it untill your 3rd semester.

For the following first-semester courses, we also offer options to participate in presence (e.g. in small groups, rolling systems, broadcasting to several lecture halls...):

  1. Einführung in die Programmierung (lecture and exercise)
    Degree programs in Computer Science, Microsystems Engineering, Embedded Systems Engineering and Sustainable Systems Engineering
  2. Mathematik I für Studierende der Informatik und der Ingenieurwissenschaften (exercises)
    Degree programs in Computer Science, Microsystems Engineering, Embedded Systems Engineering and Sustainable Systems Engineering
  3. Rechnernetze (lecture and exercise)
    Degree program in Computer Science
  4. Mikrosystemtechnik - Prozesse und Bauelemente (lecture)
    Degree programs in Microsystems Engineering, Embedded Systems Engineering and Sustainable Systems Engineering

Please be aware that you must be present in person in order to take the exams at the end of the lecture period (from mid-February to the end of March).

We strongly recommend participating in the digital orientation day for new undergraduate students on October 30, 2020. There you will find important information about your respective courses, study plans,  examination regulations as well as practical tips from the student council. You can find the detailed program for that day here.

In the week before the start of lectures in the winter semester, the student council offers a preliminary math course (German only) for beginners of all Bachelor's programs at the Faculty of Engeering. You can choose whether you prefer to participate in person or online.

An overview about the most important topics for new students you can also find on this website: https://www.tf.uni-freiburg.de/en/studies-and-teaching/a-to-z-study-faq/freshers-info

The University's central contact points also provide various helpful offers for first-term students, e.g. the Studienstart app, the general official university kick-off event "Studienstart Uni Freiburg 2020" on October 23, 2020 or the Welcome Days for international students.

Information for Bachelor students in higher semesters at the Faculty of Engineering

In the winter semester 2020/21 all courses (except for lab courses and projects) can be taken online. In addition to the online offer, some lecturers will offer on-campus sessions, adhering to the Covid-19 regulations (in small groups or in a rotation system).

Written exams can only be taken on-campus. If you choose a course that according to the description in HisinOne is assessed in any other way (e.g. oral exam), please check with the lecturer whether you can take the exam online. 

To find out detailed information about how a specific course will be offered (livestream or lecture recordings, additional on-campus sessions or not) please check the HisinOne course catalog and (if applicable) the information given on the professor’s website or in ILIAS. If you can’t find the information there, the lecturer will probably provide the details once you have booked his/her course. So, make sure to book the courses, you are interested in, and make sure to do so on time (check the booking periods and deadlines for the different types of courses).
