Due to the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic many courses will be held online. Register for the courses in TUMonline to get current information on the specific details (e.g. in a moodle course or via the links in TUMonline).
It is recommended to discuss the choice of the seminar with the mentor and (if already known) the supervisor of the Master's thesis. The table below lists by default only modules that are offered in the current semester. You can use the filter or search function to change this.
The assignation of topics and scheduling of the dates is usually done in a preliminary discussion in the first week of lectures. Within this preliminary discussion all details for this specific seminar are set.
The workload of a student seminar is according to 4 CP (ECTS). It contains the preparation and delivery of the own talk as well as the actice participation in the discussions during the seminar. Thus the workload is distributed over the whole course instead of a single examination However, it is necessary to register in TUMonline for the exam, normally within the usual deadlines. Only if your are registered in TUMonline the lecturer can enter the seminar as "passed" at the end of the semester.
Only in special cases, usually only for students of other departments or partner universities, grades are given for a student seminar. For the TUM Master's programs in physics, the student seminars are just evaluated as "pass" and do not count in the final grade.
