The Online Course Catalogue

All courses offered at TU Berlin are listed according to faculties and departments in the online course catalogue: the "Vorlesungsverzeichnis"

Next to the title of the course and a brief description of its content you will find the course number (e.g. 0150 L 10) as well as an abbreviation for the course type (e.g. VL for lecture).

Generally the credit points ("Leistungspunkte") are listed as ECTS credits. One "Leistungspunkt" equals one ECTS credit point.

Some departments publish a so called kommentiertes Vorlesungsverzeichniss where courses are described in detail.

You may also look for courses by using the following search option.

Since the course catalogue only becomes available shortly before the semester starts you have to refer to those from past semesters when working on your study plan. The changes from one summer semester to another or from winter semester to winter semester are usually very small.

Our guideline should help you navigate the course catalogue.

Academic Advising

TU Berlin is offering an academic advising service where you can get general information about our study courses.

Should you need advice on choosing your individual subjects or information about the contents of a certain course, though, please contact the academic advising units of the relevant study courses in the faculties. For your help we generated a list of email contacts of the specific academic advising units.

Some exchange programs also have an exchange coordinator who might be able to help you with your course choice. Some of you may already know the name of this coordinator but if this is not the case, you can contact us.

Language of Instruction

Most of our courses are taught in German. ERASMUS students are therefore expected to have a certain German knowledge on the completed A2 level in order to be accepted.
We also recommend the attendance of the intensive pre-semester German courses offered by TU Berlin's Center for Modern Languages (ZEMS).

There is, however, a growing number of courses offered in English. You can look them up online by switching "Unterrichtssprache" to Englisch.

You can find an overview in the following lists:

Courses in English winter semester 2018/19

Courses in English summer semester 2018

Last but not least, TU Berlin also offers a number of English taught Master programs.

Course Registration

Generally it is not necessary to register online for a course in advance. You simply attend the first session of a course and sign up in a list (if offered). Apart from that you will receive a course certificate (a "Schein") after successful attendance as a proof that you completed a course.

If, however, courses do require a prior registration, this will be stated in the course catalogue. You will also find information on where and when the registration takes place - usually via email sent to the docent.  

Architecture Students:
The presentation of projects in the department of Architecture as well as the registration for them take place a week before the lectures begin.

Course Attendance at other Berlin Universities

TU Berlin exchange students also have the opportunity to attend courses at the other Berlin universities. For that purpose you have to register with them as a guest student ("Nebenhörer") after your enrolment at TU Berlin:

Info Nebenhörer Humboldt-Universität

Info Nebenhörer Free University

Info Nebenhörer Universität der Künste

Please keep in mind the limitations of the guest student status at these universities!

We are only able to list up to three courses you attended at other Berlin universities on your TU Berlin transcript!
