Information for Winter Semester 2023/24

Dear Students,

We are looking forward to the start of winter semester 2023/24 with you on 16 October 2023.

We are also delighted to be able to continue teaching in person. Below you will find everything you need to know, whether you are just starting your studies or studying in a higher degree semester.

Please check these pages regularly as well as the University’s central information pages for students to stay up to date.

If you have questions about studying, please contact our student advisors in Course Guidance.

New students

Dear New students,

Welcome to the Institute of Chemistry at TU Berlin!

Whether you are studying Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, or Food Chemistry, you will spend most your time over the next semesters with us at the Institute of Chemistry.

Winter semester 2023/24 will be conducted in person, meaning most of your courses will be held on campus in our lecture halls, seminar rooms, or laboratories. Classes will be held online in very few cases only.

The course catalogue and ISIS, TU Berlin’s electronic learning platform, contain all essential information about individual modules and their courses. In particular, we recommend the page for first-semester students and the overview pages for B.Sc. Chemistry or B.Sc. Chemical Engineering. On these pages you will find the most important information for the first few weeks and for your degree program in general.

Once you have successfully completed the provisioning process, you can use your TUB account to access ISIS. If you are unable to complete the provisioning process, you can also access information in ISIS as a guest.

If your enrollment is still being processed at the end of September, please contact Chemistry Course Guidance IMMEDIATELY to register for your lab and other courses as well as the introductory event.

It’s natural to have a lot of questions when starting a new chapter in life, especially when also dealing with the uncertainties of the COVID pandemic.

The Course Guidance for Chemistry and Biological Chemistry, Larissa Doll, is available to support and advise you and can answer any questions about the introductory event as well as studying Chemistry and Biological Chemistry. If you have questions about the Chemical Engineering degree program, please contact Alexander Grunwald. Amandus Krause is the contact person for the Food Chemistry degree program. Do not hesitate to contact them if you have related questions!

Be sure to regularly check TU Berlin’s central pages for updates which may affect you. Before the start of the lecture period, the offers of the Ini Chemie and the Festive Welcome Event for new students on the day of the first semester could be of particular interest. The lecture period begins with the introductory event on October 16 at 8:15 a.m. in lecture hall C 130.

We would also like to draw your attention to our mentoring program. In this program, students in higher semesters accompany newly enrolled students in small groups through the initial phase of their studies and are the first point of contact for problems relating to everyday university life.

Last but not least: We recommend all first-semester students make use of the online math bridge course. It provides a solid foundation, easing your transition from math class in school to university courses.

We wish you every success in your studies and hope you stay healthy!

Students in higher degree semesters

Dear Chemistry, Biological Chemistry, and Chemical Engineering students in higher degree semesters,

we look forward to welcoming you back for the winter semester 2023/24.

All essential information about your modules will continue to be published on the respective ISIS course pages. If you haven't registered yet, check out the overview pages for the B.Sc. Chemistry, the M.Sc. Chemistry, or the Chemical Engineering degree programs.

General announcements will be regularly published here. Be sure to also regularly check TU Berlin’s general webpages.

If you have questions about studying, please contact our student advisors in Course Guidance.

You should also subscribe to our mailing list to ensure you receive important information as soon as possible (bachelor’s and master’s list).

We wish you every success as you continue your studies and hope you stay healthy!
