Monday the 21st – Wednesday the 23rd of August from approximately 09:00 to 16:00
Through the first three days of the introduction week, the Tutors will give you a taste of the university life including your study programme.
We, your Tutors, have planned the introduction programme so that you get the possibility to get to know your fellow students as well as get a taste of the university life including your study programme. Throughout the introduction days, you will work on an academic project called the introduction project with your fellow students. In this project, you explore yourself how to structure and develop an academic project ending up presenting the outcome in groups. Do not worry about perfection; we, your Tutors, will focus on creating a comfortable environment and will be present all the time to help – it is going to be a lot of fun! In addition, during the introduction days, you will also meet the Head of your programme, who will introduce you to your study programme. As well as meet the Student and Career Guidance, who will tell you more about the everyday life at the IT University as well as about rules, regulations and possibilities.
Find your introduction programmes here: DS , GBI, SWU & DMD (Please note that the introduction programmes differ from each other)
Wi-Fi at ITU
Since there will be roughly 350 people starting at ITU this semester, it is hard for the IT-department at ITU to help every single new student connect to our Wi-Fi. However, connecting has been made incredibly simple and you can prepare from home! Follow these steps:
- Visit: go.itu.dk/wifi
- Follow the instructions.
- Use your ITU email and ITU password to log in.
When you arrive to ITU your device will be able to connect with either Eduroam or ITU++. Please note that the system actually does not know if your log in options are correct – it just trusts you. So, if there is a fault you will quickly see when you try to connect. Fixing the problem is simple though – just re-do the 3 steps with correct information and it should work. If not, there will be people to help you out. Pinky promise!
