Dear future Intelligent Adaptive Systems (IAS)-students.

Please check your e-mail regularly to receive all updates and don’t hesitate to ask questions via the contacts given in that mail.
If you didn’t get any e-mail regarding the Orientation Unit yet, please use the contact information given at https://www.inf.uni-hamburg.de/studies/master/ias.html
Please be aware that all information below regarding dates, times, locations and contents of the OU still needs to be updated and is subject to change due to Covid-19.
OU for winter term 2021/2022
If you want to participate, please contact us via E-Mail.
For participating in person you have have to be vaccinated, tested or recovered.
The OU takes place in the days before the first lectures start. It’s organized by students from higher semesters to make your start into uni life as easy and carefree as possible but at the same time it’s your first official “course” at uni. It takes place from Friday the 30th of September until Friday the 8th of October with an exception for M.Sc. Intelligent Adaptive Systems. Please check out our FAQ for further detail.
During the OU you’ll get the chance to meet the other students and learn lots of things about the Uni Hamburg that you’ll need in your studies and day-to-day life. So don’t worry to much beforehand, we’ll show you all of the important stuff! To do that, we’ve planned a variety of activities. In addition to an introduction to all of the important things you’ll have to do and know for your studies, there will be a city tour in small groups. We’ll also show you the “Informatikum”, the CS campus. Furthermore you’ll also get to know STiNE, the campus management system, which you’ll need to enroll in courses and we’ll help you in finding the right courses for you. There will even be two test lectures to give you a first impression of what studying will be like.
In the evenings you’ll get a chance to get to know your peers during digital board game nights or similar online activities. Even if you already have friends in Hamburg, getting to know the other students is worthwhile since working together in groups will be essential in your studies!
This year the OU will be hybrid for the bachelor students. This means that there will be two days at the Informatikum (CS campus) and four days digitally. Some groups will start off on Thursday and some on Friday. Also there is a possibility to take part completely digitally if you wish. All groups will get the same information. Because planning is more complicated, a registration (Further below) until the 24th of September is necessary.
If you’re working or planning on working parallel to studying, try to keep the time of the OU as free as possible, especially the first Thursday and Friday, as we’ll be going over some essential stuff on that day. We know it may be hard to manage this, but we promise it’ll be worth it.
