The Academic Year

In Germany, the academic year is divided into a winter semester (WiSe) from mid-October to mid-February and a summer semester (SoSe) from mid-April to mid-July. In between semesters are a 2-month spring break and a 3-month summer break. Lectures, seminars and labs take place during the semesters, while exams take place during the breaks in electrical- and computer engineering and most other degree-programs.
