Additional information

This course may be held in either an online or presence format, in line with rules and regulations put forward by the federal government and/or TU Wien administration, in response to the evolving Covid19 situation. This may include a hybrid system where, for example, lectures and written exams are offered in an online format, and practical evaluations are offered in reduced groups on campus. Should such changes become necessary during the semester, this may lead to schedule changes, in particular, this may lead to changed dates for practical and written assessments (exams). For online written exams, the assessment/grading scheme will remain unchanged. As far as possible exams will, however, be held in person on campus.
