Preparation Courses for New Students in Engineering and Natural Sciences, Business Informatics and Statistics

Preparation courses provide a condensed review of material taught at higher levels schools in order to prepare students for initial university-level lectures.


New students without previous knowledge in programming will learn basic programming in order to successfully take part in university-level courses.

These courses are optional. Prior academic knowledge tends to differ and preparatory classes are designed particularly for newly enrolled students who wish to close gaps in some subject areas or for older students who have been out of school longer. Aside from the intensive mathematics course, students cannot earn ECTS credits for taking preparation classes.
Those who sign up for preparatory classes must be officially enrolled at the JKU. After being admitted to your major (and for any major requiring you to take the preparation courses), register for classes via KUSSS (Kepler University Study Support System). Preparation courses are free of charge.

 

The JKU offered the following preparation courses at the beginning of the 2018/2019 academic year:

  • Mathematics
  • Intensive Course in Mathematics
  • Basic Concepts in Physics for Electrical Engineering and Mechanics
  • Physics Introduction Week
  • Practical Programming

Materials from the prep course in Mathematics can be found by the course description.
