Ersti Introduction SS23


Welcome !

Hello dear Erstis,

In cooperation with the Faculty VII of the TU Berlin (GKWI) we, the student council team, organise the orientation days at our faculty every semester.

We’re looking forward to meeting you!

Your registration isn’t finished?

No problem! We are aware of the technical delays and you can visit all of our programpoints anyway.


Some Important Dates for Starting Your Studies:

Please note: The programme of the orientation days will be held in German only.

Orientation days and introductory events of Faculty VII. The full programme is listed below.

Orientation Days Programme


Are you sure you’ve googled correctly?


This may be due to the fact that the selected module is not offered every semester but only in a certain rotation – i.e. either only in the summer or winter semester. In order to be able to take this module, you must therefore wait a semester, as is the case, for example, with Introduction to Computer Science. Information on the rotation in which a module is offered can be found in the module description on Moses (Bachelor, Master).


It can be said at the outset that not all practices are registered via Moses, nor do all practices require registration. Modules from the integration area and those with laboratory practicals are often registered on Moses. If the module to be taken is not displayed on Moses, it is also very likely that no registration is required for it. Information on the structure of a module and the requirements for participation in tutorials can be obtained from the chair itself and therefore usually via their announcements in the respective ISIS course.

What is the specialisation in WiIng and when do I have to choose it?

General: You do not have to register for the specialisation, so no applications are necessary.

In the course of the degree programme, you should and must decide on a specialisation, depending on which modules you have to take in engineering. This decision does not have to be made in the first semester and can simply be made by taking the corresponding modules. Once you have decided on a specialisation, you should check the module list to see which modules are required for it and then take them. If modules belong to the compulsory modules of several specialisations, your own specialisation is only officially determined from the very first clear module. In Moses, you can enter your own specialisation, which means that only necessary modules that can be taken are displayed in the tutorial selection.

However, an application would still have to be submitted to change a specialisation.

Where and how do I register for modules?

Generally, you never register for modules, but only for exams. This is usually done via Quispos, in rare cases also via the so-called “yellow slip”. However, pay attention to the examination form of the module. In the case of portfolio examinations, registration must take place no later than six weeks after the start of the examination or before the first examination has been taken; in the case of written examinations, registration can usually take place up to one week before the date of the examination.

You can find more information in our Youtube: Link

If you register for an ISIS course, this does not count as registration, is therefore non-binding and does not force you to take part in the module. You can also easily unsubscribe by clicking on the cogwheel symbol at the top left.

How do I know which modules will even take place this semester?

Due to the current situation, some modules will probably not be offered this semester. You can find most of the information on the faculties’ pages. For modules of our Faculty VII, you can look under the following link . In addition, the individual chairs often also write on their homepage which modules are offered and which are not. Another option is to check whether the ISIS course can be found and to look up further information there after enrolling (currently mostly possible without an enrolment key). The course catalogue will be integrated into Moses for the first time this semester and will provide you with information there.
