Orientation and Introduction Week

The Departmental Student Organisation Makes Sure You Get Off to a Good Start

The orientation and introduction week is always held in the first week of the semester and organised by the Departmental Student Organisation of the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

The O&I week consists of a welcome speech, information seminars, a few lectures, a city treasure hunt, a mentor meet and greet, and the Maschinenbaufest – a special event for the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

After the welcome speech, students are split into small groups led by two upper year students for the entire week.

Students learn everything they need to know about their studies, such as

  • the course timetable
  • examination modalities
  • information about Darmstadt
  • accommodation
  • tips on textbooks and lecture notes

During this week, students also have the chance to meet some professors and get to know many of their fellow students. Our experience has shown that many of these acquaintances last throughout the course, be it through study groups, friendships or just as a general contact.
