Welcome
A welcoming event for the new master’s students always takes place in the week before the beginning of classes (in both fall and spring semester). There the new master’s students can receive information about the individual modules and the structure of the program. It is a good opportunity to ask questions and to get to know other students.

Master’s celebration
The final celebration of the master’s programs in computer science, mathematics, and actuarial science will take palce on Saturday, 24 November 2018, in the Museum Kleines Klingental.
