General Information

The O-Phase is for all students that start a Master’s degree at the faculty of mathematics or the faculty of computer science in the summer term of 2024. Our program during the three days includes a variety of different events, where some are for conveying all relevant information about the studies at the KIT and others are for getting to know your fellow students and the campus in general.

Some events are also aimed at all Master’s students and are also advertised separately.
