Current Information by the Dean of Studies

Winter Semester 2020/2021 (as of November 18, 2020)

Welcome at TUM! The lecture period of winter semester 2020/21 has started on November 2, 2020 with a combination of courses in attendance and online teaching.

Please note that our contact persons will only see you personally after having arranged an appointment at or



Examinations in the Bachelor and all Master's programs at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering 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 December 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 December 7, 2020 until January 15, 2021.

Deregistration will be possible until the end of January 2021.

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 2020, no registration or deregistration for exams will be possible after the deadlines.


Hybrid Teaching Formats

Lectures and exercises are held partly in attendance and partly in an online format. In any case, there is a wide range of online teaching formats so that you can start or continue your studies even if you cannot be present at TUM.

We also try to provide live streaming or recording for as many face-to-face courses as possible but this cannot be guaranteed.

Some of the lab courses are offered in presence again, under consideration of the current hygiene measures.


Confirmation of Attendance

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 2020/21 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:
