Dear Students,
the unusual situation caused by the Corona Virus is currently affecting our normal life and also our studies quite extraordinarily. Everyone involved at the university is working hard to cope with the new, ever-changing situation and to find solutions to the most pressing problems. In particular, we are preparing solutions for a functioning 'online' teaching for the planned start of the semester after the Easter vacations (20.04 at the earliest), in case that face-to-face teaching will not yet be possible then. In addition to the more technical problems, commissions and lawyers are also working on clarifying legal issues, extending deadlines, etc. 
According to our current knowledge, the following applies:
  • Classroom teaching has been fully suspended up to and including April 19, 2020. Students are not allowed to enter the university faculties. 
  • At the moment, examinations are not taking place. They are to be made up for in the first week of the semester, should normality prevail again by then.
  • Oral exams cannot take place: a 'remote' solution is unfortunately not yet possible. 
  • Deadlines on papers can be extended unbureaucratically upon request due to Corona. 
  • In order to meet the deadline, papers can initially be submitted electronically. The printed copies with the affidavit must be delivered before the certificates are issued and must match the electronic version. 
  • BSc or MSc colloquia may be held by video in consultation with the examiners. We ask students to coordinate with the examiners. The invitation must allow interested parties to be present. 
Please also pay special attention to the university's central page with information on the Corona crisis: 
Please contact Mr. Binder or myself with any questions or concerns you might have. 
Stay healthy and please help to slow down the spread of the virus by acting responsibly. 
Prof. Dr. Peter Fischer
Dean of Studies Computer Engineering.
