Institutsvorstellung zur Orientierung für 5.Semester und Abschlussarbeitende am Mittwoch, 10. Februar 2021 um 14:00 Uhr

Am 10. Februar ab 14:00 Uhr möchten wir für interessierte Studierende am Vertiefungsfach unser Institut und die Möglichkeiten, die sich bei uns zur Anfertigung einer Bachelor- oder Masterarbeit anbieten, vorstellen. Dabei ist ein Gespräch mit wissenschaftlichen Mitarbeitern über deren Forschungsgebiete möglich.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Zarzalis 

LV-Number: 22569

The event takes place at "Di. 14:00-15:30".
The venue is "online".
It amount to "2" SWS and takes place in WS.


The registration for the online lecture is done via ILIAS (>Link).
Please register there first.

On the ILIAS page you will find a link to join a Microsoft Teams group. Via the Microsoft Teams program you can then join the respective lectures.

Please deactivate your microphone and your camera (icons: camera and microphone) after you have logged into an MS-Teams session in order not to strain the transmission bandwidth. Then open the chat (a speak-bubble in the control bar). Here you can write questions about the material that the lecturer sees).

In order to start the lecture on time, the video session is started 15 minutes before the lecture starts. Please join this session in time to ensure the desired functionality. Please check your ILIAS mailbox regularly for further information and changes at short notice.
