Preparation for the study

Preliminary course in computer science (before winter and summer semester)

The preliminary course in computer science is aimed at first-year students of computer science, applied computer science, computer science teaching, subjects with a minor or complementary subject in computer science, and all subjects applying computer science. Thus, the preliminary course is especially intended for those first-year students who have not yet had Computer Science in school or who have not yet used computers for programming.

Participation is voluntary. However, it is recommended in order to refresh, renew and supplement computer science knowledge.

The preliminary course usually takes place in the period from

  • mid to late September for the winter semester
  • early to mid-March for the summer semester.
