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.

Mass Transfer and Reaction Kinetics (ENTECH)

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Zarzalis 

LV-Number: 22534

The event takes place at "Mi, 08:00-09:30".
The venue is "40.50, SR 004".
It amount to "2" SWS and takes place in SS.


Registration for the online lecture is done via ILIAS ( ). Please register there first. The lecturer will time-near confirm your membership.

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