Kompass Hauptstudium 2022

At the end of the fourth semester, every VIW student is faced with the choice of a major field of study. As every year, we do not leave the students of traffic engineering alone with this future-oriented decision, but offer a lot of information with “Kompass Hauptstudium” thanks to the active support of Spätverkehr and the faculty. Whether you are completely at a loss, have a certain preference for a field of study or have already made up your mind, we want to provide everyone with useful details about entering the main study programme.

After a break of two years, Kompass Hauptstudium will take place again this year on 20.06., 23.06., 27.06. and 04.07. in presence and as a hybrid event. This means that you can participate in the event in person or online via a BBB room.

This year, Kompass Hauptstudium consists of four events. There will be lectures by 8th semester students and graduates of the respective specialisation, as well as lectures by the heads of the specialisations. If they do not answer all your questions, you can post your questions in the forum and we will try to answer them satisfactorily. Furthermore, there will be a lecture by Dr. Krieg on the topic of semesters abroad.

Invitation to the “hunt for Mr. X”

We want to use the lecture-free Dies academicus (Wed, 18.05.) for a Mr. X/Mrs. Y round. In groups we will chase the group around Mr. X/Mrs. Y using regular public transport directions. This is a good opportunity to get to know fellow students or other people at the university as well as the Dresden public transport network.

Meeting point and registration is at 11 am at the FSR office (POT/12). You can come alone or in groups of up to 6 people. The end is planned for about 5 pm.

Due to the mask requirement, please remember to bring an FFP2 mask for the trips on public transport.

In the following, we have already written down the course of the game and the rules for your information, as well as attached the prepared line network map. But don’t worry: we will explain everything again on the 18th before the game starts…

We are looking forward to seeing you!

Survey on study programmes in the field of transport

The Academy for Sustainable Road and Transport Engineering is conducting a survey on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport (BMDV) to develop new study programmes in the field of civil engineering and transport in order to counter the shortage of skilled workers in Germany.

The study programmes should be future-oriented and focus on sustainability, meet the ever-increasing requirements, for example the linking of technical with digital issues, and more strongly promote the integration of international students.

To make this possible, all students of our faculty are asked to participate in the following anonymous online survey (it takes about 10 minutes to complete).
The survey results will be presented on 7 July at the FTBGU Faculty Day.

You can find the survey here: akademie.lamapoll.de/Studis.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Academy for Sustainable Roads and Transport.
Thank you for your support.

Railway station tour of the Verkehrte Welt on 16.06.2022

Verkehrte Welt, in cooperation with DB Station & Service, is once again offering all interested students a guided tour of Dresden Central Station. The current date is Thursday 16.06.2022 at 14:00, but this may be postponed again due to the pandemic. The tour lasts about three hours and is free of charge. We will meet at the main entrance (at the tram stop of lines 3 and 8) in the large hall, commonly known as “under the rope”. As we also want to climb the roof of the main station, the tour is unfortunately not barrier-free.

Due to a limited number of participants, we kindly ask you to register at https://bildungsportal.sachsen.de/opal/auth/RepositoryEntry/28489023488/CourseNode/1636947258228962006?5.

RepairCafé opens on the TUD campus on 17 May

If the household appliance no longer works or sewing work is needed, a visit to the first RepairCafé on the main campus of TU Dresden on 17 May can help. The self-help workshop will be open that day between 5 and 7:30 p.m. and will help those seeking help to make defective devices – hopefully – functional again under the guidance of tech-savvy volunteers. 

The RepairCafé is the kick-off for repair events that will now take place regularly at the SLUB Makerspace in the DrePunct Library (Zellescher Weg 17 in the BZW). Not only the volunteers of the RepairCafé Dresden/Freital initiative as well as many volunteers from the TUD cosmos provide support, but also the SLUB employees with knowledge and equipment from 3D printers to sewing machines. Anyone is welcome who would like to be supported and advised on repairs free of charge.

In addition to repairing, the café character will not be neglected. Coffee and cake are available for refreshment and conversation. It would be nice to register for the RepairCafé so that the Green Office knows what equipment is needed, but spontaneous participants are also welcome. You can register online at: https://tu-dresden.de/tu-dresden/umwelt-und-klima/greenoffice/anmeldung-repaircafe or by calling the TU Dresden Green Office at 0351-463 33037.
