To make your start here go as smoothly and easily as possible, we have organized a lot of events during the week from 7st to 12th of October before the lectures begin. At TU Dresden the orientation week is referred to as ESE. Unfortunately, some of those events take place during the math preparatory courses (“Brückenkurs”). We recommend attending the “ESE”, especially, as there is an online course available again this year.

An extensive collection of everything you need to know can also be found in this brochure (german only).

Every new student at the Faculty of Computer Science is invited to join the ESE. In addition to the main events organized by us there are dedicated introductory meetings for other study paths than pure Computer Science or Media Computer Science. Have a look.

During the ESE week you can recognize helpers by their beautiful #018554 t-shirts. Simply walk up to them and talk to them. You can ask them anything, no need to be shy. Of course you can always contact the FSR via email, phone or social media. The office should be occupied as well at all times during the week.
