Support for first-year students of the summer semester

In addition to the first-semester tutorial & Co., there are two special offers for first-year students in the summer semester this year.

Fit for Math: Online course and study group

“Fit for Math” is all about repeating and consolidating your knowledge of mathematics before the start of your studies, so that the first semester goes (even) better. In addition to the free online course, there is a separate learning group for the summer semester for the first time this year, which is led by students and takes place twice a week in February.

Welcome event

Bachelor's and Master's students are warmly invited to an informal welcome talk, where they can ask any questions they have about starting their studies and network with fellow students.

Free MATLAB and Simulink licences

The TU Graz now offers all students a licence for MATLAB, Simulink and all accompanying toolboxes. This licence allows free use of all MathWorks products on private devices.

Students have access to MathWorks learning resources, including online self-study courses, to quickly deepen their MATLAB and Simulink skills. The software can be obtained from the MathWorks portal.

Information on other available software solutions available through TU Graz can be found on the intranet TU4U (in German).
