President's message for the start of the summer semester 2021
The exam period is behind us - thanks to our hygiene concept, we did not have to send a single examinee or staff member into quarantine due to an attendance examination. Now, planning for the new semester is in full swing. Of course, the current situation does not allow us to make any reliable statements about the course of the entire semester - like everyone else, we have to "run on sight".
At the beginning of the semester, lectures will unfortunately only be held online. However, we very much hope that the pandemic situation will allow us to hold at least some of the lectures in attendance or as hybrid lectures step by step during the course of the semester.
The current legal situation allows practical laboratory exercises to be held in presence - we want to make use of this possibility. We are currently working on a concept of how we can use quick tests to make the implementation of these practical courses even safer. You will receive more detailed information about which lab exercises will be carried out in presence from the departments or program heads. Therefore, please read your mails carefully even during the semester break.
We all wish to be able to increase the amount of face-to-face lectures as soon as possible and hope to see you at the University during the summer semester.
