Current Information by the Dean of Studies

Winter Semester 2020/2021 (as of February 17, 2021)

Update February 17, 2021: Information on the examination formats

Update February 2, 2021: Presence examinations in compliance with the existing hygiene regulations are now only possible for up to approx. 40 examinees. Scheduled presence examinations with more participants will either be changed to an online format or postponed. If you are affected by a change of the examination format, you will be informed by e-mail about the procedure by your examiner or the Student Services Office of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering EI at the latest 2 weeks before the examination date.

Unfortunately, we currently have to ask all students to refrain from visiting our service units in person due to the Corona Pandemic and the security regulations that are therefore in place. Instead, we kindly ask you to contact us via email or phone (Monday through Friday 9 am-12 pm and 1-4 pm).

Academic Teaching in Summer Semester 2021 (as of March 02, 2021)

For summer semester 2021, TUM plans with a combination of courses in attendance and in an online format (hybrid semester). At the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, larger courses will mostly be held online because it is not yet possible to foresee how the pandemic will develop. To give students planning reliability, courses that are started in an online format will be held online throughout the semester.  

Academic Courses Offered in the Master’s Programs at the Department (Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik, Communications Engineering, Power Engineering, Neuroengineering)

Lectures and exercises in the core and elective areas of our Master's programs will be taught primarily an online format. Thus, it is made sure that you can continue your studies even if you cannot be present at TUM. However some courses, especially labs, will also be held in attendance, in accordance with the applicable hygiene measures. These courses are listed here.

Examinations (concerns the Bachelor and all Master’s Programs at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering)

The format of the examinations in Summer Semester 2021 has not yet been decided. Which exams will take place how and when will probably not be established until the end of April/beginning of May and will then be published on our website and in TUMonline (our Campus Management System). Please note that this information may change at short notice due to the general situation even thereafter.

Registration for exams will be open from mid-May/the end of May until the end of June 2021.  Deregistration will be possible until one week prior to the examination or until July 12, 2021 if the examination date is not yet determined. Please note that these deadlines may change.

For this reason, please regularly check the website of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering for information regarding examinations and pay close attention to the emails that you receive from us. Due to the Corona Pandemic, it is expected that special regulations will continue to apply for participation in examinations (in-person and online examinations). We would therefore like to point out that the registration and deregistration deadlines for examinations must be met strictly. Similar to the regulations in winter semester 2021, no registration or deregistration for exams will be possible after the deadlines.

Confirmation of Possible Courses On-Campus for SoSe 2021

In many cases, a confirmation of attendance must be handed in for the entry to Germany and the visa application. 

Such a confirmation is available for download in TUMonline after the online application has been submitted in time. At your application under the tab “application submission” in the section “registration confirmation", you will find a registration confirmation for submission to authorities. This registration confirmation states that summer semester 2021 is a hybrid semester in which digital formats and on-campus formats will be combined.

In case that you need further documentation to enter Germany, please contact the Department directly, according to your study program:
