Applications are open once a year, for the winter semester. The dates are usually posted centrally by the TU Berlin, and the respective website will be: https://www.tu.berlin/en/studying/applying-and-enrolling/dates-deadlines/ 
When do lectures start?
Please note that there is a difference between the semester and the lecture period: Usually the lecture period starts about two weeks into the semester and ends well before the semester ends (mid October for the winter semester and mid April for the summer semester). The period after the lecture period ends and before the next one starts is often referred to as the semester break. However, examination dates can be planned after the end of the lecture period (usually at the beginning or end of the semester break), so make sure you are still in Berlin at the time of your exams.
Are there any orientation events?
What about accommodation?
I’ve enrolled, now what?
Next, check the module descriptions of the modules that interest you for the “Turnus” information which will tell you whether the module (or component of the module) is usually offered during the winter semester, summer semester or both. For those that will be offered in the coming semester, check the teaching page on the department’s website (linked at the top of the module description) or the LSF  to find out when and where the lectures etc. will take place. If you have already received your TubIT account information (or once you receive it), look for the course page in ISIS , where you will usually also find the information about dates, times and locations of the module components (“enrolling” for a course on ISIS just gives you access to the course page, it does not officially sign you up for the course). Make sure you have the correct course page, there are separate ones for each semester as ISIS is also an archive and while it may be useful to access the older course pages for material etc. you need to be enrolled on the course page for the current semester to receive emails about announcements, hand in assignments etc.
There is no official sign up procedure for the modules, you just need to go to the first lecture and will receive all further information there. That includes the deadline for the exam registration, which is the one official registration for the module and usually happens during the semester (deadlines differ depending on the type of exam).
