SuPra - Registration for Seminars and Practical Trainings
More than 1700 pratical trainings, proseminar and seminar topics are offered by the Computer Science Department each semester. The variety and breadth covers the entire range of subjects we offer in Aachen. You can choose from this large catalog. It may happen that other students find your favorite choice very attractive.
Therefore, to ensure a fair distribution, we arrange the allocation for seminars and internships via the portal SuPra.
A good two months before the respective semester starts, all offers are visible and you can enter your wishes.
The system programming training is not assigned via SuPra, but directly via the executing chair.
If there are any unanswered questions or difficulties - whether of a technical or content-related nature - the SuPra team will be happy to help. The Supra portal is also open during the distribution process: Here you will also find comprehensive instructions.
During the elective phase, you specify your needs for up to two module types (1st module, 2nd module - proseminar, SPP, seminar, or pratical training, depending on your program), create a watch list of the most interesting topics, and prioritize each offering from 1 (highest) to 3 (lowest).
Recommended for the three highest priorities for the modules is to use the comment function to write something about yourself, your suitability and your interest. Your final confirmation of the entries completes the selection and you participate in the awarding process.
By the way, corrections can be made as long as the election phase is running.
This only applies to SPPs, seminars and practical trainings; proseminars are distributed automatically, therefore the comment function as well as the prioritization is omitted.
Check your e-mail address. It is possible that it is still the one you used when you enrolled. In SuPra you can change it under "Personal data".
Internal Processing & Notification
During the internal processing of all registered requirements, these are compared with the available offers. If there is a good balance here, the allocation will be started. If not, the department will try to adjust the offers to the needs. In this case you will be allowed to adjust your choices again.
After the needs assessment, in distribution phase 1 your choices for the 1st module will be considered and an attempt will be made to achieve an allocation. You will be informed about the completion of this phase by mail. Then you have time again to look at your choices for the 2nd module. Possibly some courses have already been completely filled in distribution phase 1, so you can check again if you want to reprioritize something in order not to give away any chance. In the following, the distribution phase 2, these choices will be taken into account and again we will try to allocate you. Again, you will be notified by mail at the end.
"Free market" option
With the end of all distribution and election loops, there will be vacant courses that have not found a match. In the "free market", these are open to those who have not received an allocation.
