The O-Phase is over

All information material presented in the O-Phase can be found at Publications. If you have any questions, you can always contact the Fachschaft. We wish you the best for your master studies!

Dear Student,

you have applied for studying Mathematics (Mathematik) or Informatics (Informatik) starting next semester at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). As soon as you have enrolled, you are a member of the student body (Fachschaft) Mathematik/Informatik. If you have applied for a different field, please visit and contact the student body of your field of study. We’d like to invite you to our so-called orientation days (O-Phase) for all future master freshmen, where you’ll get information about your studies and have a chance to meet your future fellow students. It will take place from

Thursday, April 12th until Saturday, April 14th 2018.

If you didn’t receive the invitation via e-mail, you can find it here.

To make planning easier for us please register for some of the events on this site.
