What is the ErstiWoche?


To welcome the new students, the introductory week takes place every year in October at the TU Ilmenau. This week includes numerous cultural and leisure events, which are summarized under the term "ErstiWoche". They serve to get to know the city, your fellow students and of course the university and its campus. Fun and joy are guaranteed!

Of course we think about the Master students: Especially for you Master introductory days are offered. Since all of you have already completed a degree, an intensive introductory programme is no longer necessary for most of you. But if you still don't want to miss the fun of the ErstiWoche, you can of course take part in all ErstiWoche events.

Who organizes the ErstiWoche?

The ErstiWoche is planned and organised by students for students. We call ourselves ErstiWochen-Orga (EWO for short) and are a department of the student council of the TU Ilmenau (StuRa for short). All members of the EWO are always easily recognizable by an orange ORGA shirt.
