    Studying and learning at the SDI in times of Corona

    The SDI will be closed from 9 through 14 April 2020! We wish all students, pupils and staff a happy Easter and relaxing days! Stay healthy! #stayhome

    Dear students and pupils at the SDI!

    On April 19, 2020 the current restrictions will end. Whether and to what extent they will continue after that date will be decided by the federal and state governments in the next two weeks. No matter how it will continue: Together we will make it! Some more information on this from our side ...

    General information

    In the event that the SDI is reopened for teaching and learning on 20 April 2020 ... Your health and that of our employees is close to our heart. That is why we have taken precautions early on and will continue to do so.

    • Please continue to observe the hygiene regulations that have been posted throughout the building.
    • Dispensers with hand disinfectants are placed on each floor.
    • A homemade mouth and nose protector is sure to be a big hit this year. Be part of it as a trendsetter. But please leave the professional masks to the doctors and nurses.
    • All classrooms have been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected during the closing time. Afterwards they were locked.
    • Should the lessons start on site, we will ensure appropriate disinfection of the classrooms every day in addition to normal cleaning.

    Online teaching or face-to-face teaching: Within less than a week and with your support, we have successfully switched teaching to online. Every day we are learning and getting better. That's why we are also well prepared for the case that after April 20, 2020, courses can only continue online. For you, this means that all lessons will take place as planned, but perhaps even online.

    Whether and to what extent we can reopen the library at the start of the semester, we do not know yet. In any case, we will continue to try to make the use of the computer rooms possible, taking into account the hygiene regulations.

    And we are currently working on having many of our courses certified for online teaching as well, so that we can be even more flexible for you in the future.

    Examinations: We currently assume that the examinations will take place as planned during the scheduled examination period starting on July 11, 2020. At the same time, we are examining what alternatives are possible. As usual, you will find all current information on elSDI.

    Submission of theses: Bachelor and Master theses can - depending on the development of the situation - also be submitted online. The necessary criteria and further details can be found on elSDI.
