A formal ceremony where your graduation can be celebrated together with family, friends and professors.


The study program ceremonies begin at 2.30 and 3:30 pm respectively.  The official ceremony begins at 5.30 pm in the great hall of the CCP. 

We will provide you an academic robe for professional photographs.

The ceremony ends between 7.30 and 8 pm (depending on the size of the event) with a champagne reception and pretzels. The exact details such as the room number and time of each study program ceremony will be sent to you in advance via email.

All graduates (all examination grades must have been submitted to the examination office by 1st march) are sent a written invitation to the ceremony on 5th april 2019.  If you have only just handed in your thesis, your graduation ceremony may be later.  If you would still like to participate (for example in order to celebrate with your fellow-students) you can register as a guest.  

At the request of many students the graduation will take place in the form of an award ceremony in the Pforzheim Congress Centre. The ceremonial setting, the planned program and the champagne reception involve additional costs, which unfortunately cannot be completely covered by the sponsors.  Therefore, the participants are required to bear the additional costs.


Tickets for the ceremony are free for graduates with the use of the promotion code, children under the age of 14 do not need a ticket.  However, please inform us via email of the number and age of the child/children, so that we can plan the corresponding number of seats.


Every guest and every graduate need to have a ticket.  Graduates receive a complimentary ticket by entering the promotion code.
