The O-Phase begins one week before the start of the winter semester and is aimed at all first-year students of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. During the O-Phase, students are provided with important information about the start and course of their studies, student life and the environment of the university. Although participation is not mandatory, it is highly recommended. In addition to the pre-courses, the relaxed atmosphere of the O-Phase offers a very good first opportunity to make contact with new fellow students and to explore the campus.
