First semester introduction Master

Wintersemester 2023/2024

For all those who are now starting their Master's program at the University of Ulm, we offer a separate Master's ESE ("ErstSemesterEinführung" -> first-semester welcoming program) . The Master-ESE targets the study programs Informatics, Media Informatics, Software Engineering, Cognitive Systems and Artificial Intelligence. It doesn't matter if you did your Bachelor's degree in Ulm, if you already know your way around Ulm or if you are just getting to know the city for the first time. We have planned a diverse program to make it easy for everyone to get started with their Master's.

During the ESE, we will explain the study and examination regulations of the master, as well as helping you to get oriented at the university, what courses are available to you and which institutes are responsible for what. However, a good portion of university life is meeting new people and having fun which the ESE will also help you kickstart. During the ESE there will be a considerable amount of time spent simply getting to know your fellow students, including a walk at the univerity's surroundings, a barbecue and a pub crawl.

Where and When?

Die ESE findet am Donnerstag, den 11. April 2024 statt. Beginn ist um 10:00 Uhr, der Raum wird noch angekündigt. Hier schonmal ein vorläufiger Zeitplan:
