Digital winter semester 2020/21

Last update: October 22, 2020 (updatred link to english website “Getting started”.

Dear students of the Department of Computer Science,

© Fraunhofer SIT

the COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things in our lives. The start of your studies at the TU Darmstadt is no exception and has exciting challenges in store for students, lecturers and employees.

In the past few weeks, we have been able to gain experience in digital teaching and developed new teaching and learning concepts. The winter semester will again be digital and the number of classroom lectures will be reduced to a minimum.

We know that much of what constitutes a course of study suffers as a result. But we should make the most of this time and give the new and unusual a chance. As a faculty, we do our best to make studying exciting and instructive for you as a student under the difficult circumstances.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to the students who will begin their studies in the winter semester 2020/21. I wish you a good start to your studies and all the best for this new phase of your life.

Prof. Dr. Michael Waidner
Chair for Student Affairs
