SET Unit

SET Unit

The SET department is responsible for the implementation of the Introductory Study Days (SET). There, the first-year students are offered various events, ranging from a welcome event, campus tour, pub crawl, IT introduction to a joint breakfast and barbecue. In the winter semester, the SET takes place over three days, usually from Thursday to Saturday, before lectures begin. For first-year Master’s students in the summer semester, a one-day SET is usually held on the Thursday before the start of lectures.

The SET-unit is led by several lecturers, who take care of the preparation and organization of the SET. They are supported by several staff members. During the SET, this team is supported by tutors. They show the first-year students around the campus, pack the bags for the first-year students, help with the barbecue, etc.

After the SET is before the SET, because already at the beginning of the semester the preparation for the next SET starts. This involves reserving lecture halls, inviting speakers for the information events, asking companies for giveaways for the first-year bags, recruiting tutors and much more…

We are currently looking for tutors to help conduct and carry out the Summer-SET 2024. As a Tutor, you will for example guide Students around the Campus, supervise a station at the Campus-Rallye or help out at the grill. Further information can be found here here.
