Teaching methods

Discussion of manufacturing processes

Mode of examination


Additional information

Should it not be possible to hold the course and the examination in presence due to requirements of the federal government or the Vienna University of Technology, the online format will be used. Switching to the online format does not change the dates announced for the face-to-face course and examination. The examination mode is the same for online and face-to-face examinations (presentation).
