Stays abroad

  • Students currently abroad and affected by restricted teaching activities are asked to contact the international affairs officer as quickly as possible.
  • Planning activities for a stay abroad in the summer semester 2021 may continue for the time being, but it is currently not foreseeable whether such stay abroad will actually be possible.

Bachelor's and Master's theses

  • New research projects, bachelor’s and master’s theses may be started in consultation with the respective supervisors.
  • New (11 Aug 2020) Successfull completion of the module Soft and Professional Skills is again the necessary condition to register your bachelor’s thesis. If you have any questions, please contact the examination committee responsible for your degree programme.
  • Until further notice, there is no signature required when registering your bachelor’s or master’s thesis. The supervisors will explain the new registration process.
  • If possible, the final presentation and submission of research projects, bachelor’s and master’s theses should be done either digitally or postponed to a later date.
  • In order to keep the deadline, it is sufficient to submit an electronic version by e-mail to the supervisor for the time being. The printed version may be submitted by mail or at a later time as soon as the dean’s office is open again.
  • You may apply for an extension of deadlines by stating delays as a consequence from the Corona pandemic, e.g. restricted operations in your supervising company or because experiments with test persons cannot be conducted properly.

Student assistants

  • Work as a student assistant can start as usual. However, all work should be done from home, if possible.
