Dates and deadlines

The Department of Computer Science offers undergraduate seminars (proseminars) each semester. Students are assigned to courses after an online registration with priority survey. The surveys usually take place

  • in the second half of June for the following winter semester,
  • in the second half of December for the following summer semester

and are announced under News on this website.


  • In case of problems regarding the registration, please contact the Proseminar Representative M. Sc. Simon Klüttermann at Proseminarcs.tu-dortmundde.
  • In case of questions concerning the contents and modalities of the respective proseminars, please contact the organizers.

Presentation course

  • A presentation course represents one of the two course credits of the module INF-BSc-110.
  • In some proseminars the presentation course is integrated (this should have been made clear by the organizer).
  • For other proseminars, an external event must be attended.
    • More information about the external event can be found in the LSF
    • The dates are usually not fixed until some time after the survey.

(Resolution of the Examination Committee of 10.02.2016).

The course credit via the element "Proseminar" and the module exam of the module "Proseminar" of the bachelor study program Computer Science are credited as course credit uber the element "Seminar" or as module exam of the modules "Computer Science in Context and Seminar GyGe", "Hardware Internship and Seminar BK" or "Hardware Internship ET and Seminar BK". The course credit must have been acquired in the same course for which the module exam is taken.

Students of the master's degree in teaching according to the LAGB2009 participate in the registration procedure in the same way as students of the bachelor's degree in computer science.
