Final Thesis Deadlines

In the event that deadlines to complete a final thesis, seminar paper or term paper cannot be met due to current restrictions in connection with the coronavirus, e.g. due to the closure of laboratories, workshops or the university library, an application for extension of the deadline may be submitted to the relevant Examination Board. If it can be verified that it was not possible, or not possible with reasonable effort, to complete the work within the originally specified time due to current restrictions, an extension of the deadline may be granted.

Due to current restrictions, registration for the final thesis may be done by email.

Information obtained from TUM Corona Website. Accurate as of 19/3/20.

Note: You will be required to purchase a new semester ticket, starting 1.4.20
