Welcome to the Faculty of Engineering!

This page will provide you with the most important information first-semester students will need before they begin and during their degree programme. You can find more details on individual pieces of information in the various submenus.


Industry internship

During your studies, you will have to complete two industry internships (the basic industry internship and the technical industry internship). Information about industry internships (the internship regulations, forms, sample internship reports, and so on) are in the Industry internship menu.


First semester offers

First-semester student greeting at the Institute of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

Here you can find a PowerPoint presentation with information for first-semester students in the Bachelor's degree programmes in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, and Electrical Engineering, Information Technology and Business Management.


First semester supervision

First-semester supervision for engineers is offered, in which student tutors provide support in understanding the material and working through practical tasks. You can also ask any questions you have about your studies and the degree programme.


Mathematics refresher course

New students are offered a mathematics refresher course before each winter semester to bring them back up to speed on mathematics skills from school. You can find information on and the contents of this refresher course at:

Info about the school mathematics refresher course

This course is generally held in the last two weeks before lectures begin (that is, as from the beginning of October). Participation in the course is voluntary but highly recommended to ease the transition into the first few lectures.


Curriculum and class schedules

At the University, you have to organise your class schedule yourself. So that you don’t encounter any problems when doing this, here are some brief instructions to help you organise your schedule using UnivIS.

In addition to an overview of all modules taking place at Kiel University, UnivIS also provides detailed information about the modules, such as time of day, rooms, and the lecturers responsible for them. You can reach UnivIS through this link: UnivIS.

Let's assume you want to compile your class schedule for your first semester in Univis:

  1. Select the correct semester at the top right, for example WS 2013/2014.
  2. Then click the following sequences: Lecture directory -->Faculty of Engineering --> Bachelorstudiengang Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik or Bachelorstudiengang Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik --> 1. Semester
  3. Now you will see a list of the lectures and exercises offered in the first semester. Check the boxes next to the subjects you want, then click Auswahl zur Sammlung hinzufügen.  The lectures you've selected are stored for you. Warning: Be sure not to use the "Back" button on your browser when navigating in UnivIS! The lectures you just selected will be lost if you do.
  4. Now you can add non-technical optional subjects, for example through Lecture directory --> Faculty of Arts and Humanities. Bear in mind that under some circumstances you must register in time for non-technical optional subjects. For more details about non-technical optional subjects, see the section Non-technical optional subjects below or in the Courses submenu.
  5. Once you've selected all the courses you need, click on Collection/class schedule at the top of the page. You will now see a summary list of all the selected courses. Click on Class schedule on the left to display the complete class schedule. If there are any overlaps, they will be highlighted at the bottom. On the left, you can also click PDF landscape to produce a pdf file of your class schedule.

What a complete class schedule for the first semester can look like is shown here.
