BTU Highlights

Once a year in January, the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg hosts the university ball. For this event, the refectory on the central campus is transformed into a ballroom. For one night, students, teachers, employees and friends of the university celebrate together. The best academic theses of the University and the individual faculties are awarded the University Prizes every year, also in January. The summer semester is welcomed at the BTU with the "Classic & Clubbing" event. The special mix is the club atmosphere, which ensures a good mood, and a fullminant midnight concert by the symphony orchestra of the State Theater in the Audimax. The open day is not only aimed at pupils interested in studying. It offers all those interested the opportunity to find out about the university's projects and facilities or to talk to researchers. It is also closely linked to the students' summer festival. The new academic year starts at the beginning of the winter semester at the beginning of October with the ceremonial matriculation and the OTIWO. Students, professors and employees of the BTU celebrate the end of the year together at a concert by the "Collegium musicum" in the Audimax at the central campus.

Matriculation ceremony

At the beginning of the winter semester, all first-year students and their relatives are invited to a ceremonial matriculation to celebrate the start of their new phase of life. Traditionally, one student from each degree program signs the BTU's enrollment book. In addition, the Germany Scholarships and the DAAD Award are presented at this ceremony.

OTIWO introductory week

With a one-week program, those who know how to do it, arrange the transition into student life for their new fellow students in a very special and charming student way. The focus is on getting to know each other. The week starts with the legendary paddle tour. During the city rally, the new students go through Cottbus in teams and solve funny, sporty or creative tasks at various stations, such as stacking beer crates on campus. The week ends with the CampusClubNight - the biggest campus party of the year, where freshmen and students celebrate the start of the new academic year together.To the OTIWO website
