Digital information for freshmen

For "self-study" you can find the playlist "Infotage für Erstsemester" on the Youtube channel of Mittweida University of Applied Sciences. Important contact persons and many projects present themselves in videos and thus want to help you get into your studies. For example, the university library explains where and how to get the literature you need for your studies. The network and communication center explains how to check your e-mails with your university account and how to use the university network from outside.
