Preparation Courses for First-Year Students in Engineering, Natural Sciences and Business Informatics

During the winter term 2008/2009, the JKU will offer the following preparation courses:

  • Mathematics
  • General Fundamentals of Physics for Electrical Engineering and Mechanics
  • Applied Programming Skills

These preparation courses (Vorkurse) provide first-semester students with an in-depth review of course material from secondary school subjects and an opportunity to better anticipate course material during initial introductory lectures in their major fields of study. First-year students without programming experience will learn the basics with which to successfully master the courses in programming.

There is no additional teaching material taught from part of the university education program.

Participation is voluntary and courses are open only first-semester students at JKU. Please register under KUSSS System (Kepler University Study Support System) after you have been accepted to a major field of study.

The preparation courses are free of charge.
