Academic Teaching in Winter Semester 2021/2022 (as of October 18, 2021)

Welcome to TUM! We are pleased to welcome you back to campus for the winter semester 2021/22. Courses in the winter semester 2021/22 will be offered in both face-to-face and digital formats. We strive to ensure that every student is able to attend at least two on-site courses per week, depending on individual schedules. You can see the way the courses are conducted in TUMonline. The lecture period starts on October 18, 2021 and ends on February 11, 2022.

Please note the currently applicable 3G rule (tested negative, vaccinated or recovered) in all TUM buildings as well as the requirement to wear face masks. Information on approved vaccinations from the Paul Ehrlich Institute

Detailed information on the current regulations can be found here

Update Corona Pandemic (October 25, 2021): Special vaccination event for students on November 2, 2021 on TUM Campus Munich. Please find all details here

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

Lectures and exercises in the core and elective areas of our Master's programs will be held partly in attendance and partly in an online format. We also try to provide live coverage or recording for as many face-to-face courses as possible, but this cannot be guaranteed.

Most of the lab courses will be offered in presence again, if the coronavirus situation allows for it. 

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

Examinations will be offered in different forms. Exams will take place in person as well as online. Which exams will take place how and when will probably not be established until November 2021 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.

Registration for exams is open from mid-November 2021 until mid-January 2022.

Deregistration will be possible until the end of January 2022.

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 strictly met. Similar to the regulations in summer semester 2021, no registration or deregistration for exams will be possible after the deadlines.

Confirmation of Attendance for Winter Semester 2021/22

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 . 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 some formats in winter semester 2021/22 may be held in presence on campus.

In case that you need further documentation to enter Germany, please contact the Department directly, according to your study program (please provide your full name with matriculation number in your email):
