This year’s first-semester information day takes place on Monday, 16.10.2023.
It begins at 9:00 am in lecture hall 0980 (Audimax) with introductory lectures about studying, student life, and all important information for you. The program includes campus tours, where you can also buy lecture notes. The program on Monday ends with a get-together in the student council, where you can personally get in touch with the representatives of the academic advising and members of the student council. The relaxed atmosphere provides the best opportunity to interact with your fellow students. Food and drinks will be provided, so you can prepare for the enrolment ceremony in the evening!
We are happy to answer your questions by email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Semester Dates #
Dates that are relevant to all students at TUM can be found in the semester dates. These include semester and Christmas holidays or the lecture-free Dies Academicus in December. On the other hand, exam dates are announced separately by the student secretariat.
TIP: You can also subscribe to your TUM-Online calendar with all your lectures in your smartphone calendar. The advantage over normal importing is that the calendar updates automatically, which means you will always have your current schedule with classroom assignments and changes. You will find the instructions here.
Exams/Study Regulations #
The study program here at the university is based on two regulations:
- the General Examination and Study Regulations (APSO)
- the Subject-specific Examination and Study Regulations (FPSO)
Both of these regulations are legally binding. We will discuss these two regulations in more detail below.
Study Guide #
To make it easier to understand the APSO and FPSO, the Study Guide was written. Here, the desired course of study is explained. You can find current module descriptions for your mandatory modules as well as the Study Guide at this link.
Study Planning #
The previously popular study planner has unfortunately been discontinued. The study and schedule planning can now be found in [TUMOnline]. The Master Admission Calculator can be found here.
Exam Dates #
The Bachelor Examination Board is responsible for determining the exam dates. Current exam dates can be found on the [Student Affairs Office] ( https://www.cit.tum.de/cit/studium/studierende/pruefungsangelegenheiten-module/elektrotechnik-informationstechnik/) website.
Examination Regulation #
All exams for the basic and orientation examination (GOP) are taken directly after the lecture period in the first two weeks of the vacation period. In general, there is only one retake allowed for each exam. The repeat examinations usually take place in the last weeks of the respective semester break.
For the first and second semester, there is a joker regulation regarding failed exams: Examinations with a maximum of 7 ECTS credits may be repeated as often as desired within the scope of the study progress monitoring. Since all modules in the first two semesters are worth between 5 and 7 ECTS credits, this means that you have to pass exactly one exam at the latest after the 8th semester and all other exams at the latest in the second attempt, provided that other examination progress is ensured.
From the 3rd semester onwards, you then have an unlimited number of attempts within the scope of the study progress monitoring for an exam.
All examination modalities are regulated in the General Examination and Study Regulations (APSO) and in the Subject-specific Examination and Study Regulations (FPSO). Both of these documents are also legally binding. The APSO applies to all students at TUM. There are different versions of the FPSO (also to be found on the info page of the CIT on the BSEI), each of which applies to different cohorts:
|valid for studies beginning with the …
|Most Important Changes
|Change from Diplom to Bachelor
|Splitting of the module Foundations of Computer Science into Algorithms and Data Structures and Programming in C
|WS 10/11, WS 11/12, WS 12/13
|(Re-)introduction of the so-called GOP-Joker
|Special regulations due to the double high school graduate year
|Restructuring of the module catalogue in the basic studies
|Adjustment of the basic studies orientation
Note: the above table is intended to provide guidance only. It is not legally binding.
Exam Registration #
All students enrolled in the 1st and 2nd semesters are automatically registered for their exams. No separate registration is necessary.
From the 3rd semester onwards, students must independently register for the exams. Only registered students may participate in an exam. Please note the registration periods on TUMOnline.
Exam Withdrawal #
[Here] ( https://www.cit.tum.de/cit/studium/studierende/pruefungsangelegenheiten-module/elektrotechnik-informationstechnik/) you will find applications for exam withdrawal.
Study Progress Monitoring #
To meet the study progress monitoring requirements, you must have collected a certain number of credits. This number is according to the APSO:
|after the 1st semester: 0 ECTS
|after the 2nd semester: 0 ECTS
|after the 3rd semester: 30 ECTS
|after the 4th semester: 60 ECTS
|after the 5th semester: 90 ECTS
|after the 6th semester: 120 ECTS
|after the 7th semester: 150 ECTS
|after the 8th semester: 180 ECTS
The FPSO provides stricter rules for the first two semesters. Thus, anyone who has passed the GOP with a total of 60 ECTS already fulfills the study progress monitoring up to the 4th semester.
Effects of the Corona Epidemic on Study Progress Monitoring #
From the summer semester 2020 to the winter semester 2021/22, the standard period of study was suspended. This means that all semesters during this period do not count toward the study progress monitoring.
