How to study?
Roughly speaking: Participate in courses, take exams and other tests, write your thesis, done. But that can be described more precisely:
How exactly the study is organized is described in the so-called order. It consists of the implementation regulations for the general examination regulations, the study and examination plan, the competence descriptions and the module handbook. Although not all of these official documents are super easy to read, it is still advisable to read them thoroughly. As a starting point we have provided you with the essential contents here.
Teaching & Learning
Lecture, exercise, seminar -- a short explanation of these and other forms can be found on this page.
In the digital semester everything runs a little differently -- how exactly the actual presence courses function digitally and remotely is decided individually by the organizers. In general: always try to participate in the first event, where you normally get all the important information.
You cannot hand out worksheets in an event with more than 500 participants. And you can't read out point lists or register for the exam by hand. That is why there are a number of web portals at the TU Darmstadt. We have described the most important ones for you here.
Astonishingly much in computer science studies is possible without a computer. But sometimes you do need them, or at least they are very helpful. An overview of everything related to computers at the university can be found here.
Where to study
Learning at home? Or at the university? Unfortunately, this question is not really relevant at the moment, but when this is over, there will be many different places to learn at waiting to be discovered by you.
