Information on teaching in winter semester 2021/22


Due to the current situation, the course will take place as e-learning on the Moodle platform. We have decided to use asynchronous learning to reduce the risks. Each student carries out the lab alone and each experiment consists of two phases. In the first phase the experiment is prepared. In this phase, the preparation tasks are solved and a written test is solved in Moodle The solved preparation tasks must be uploaded to Moodle by the fixed deadline. In the second phase the experiment is carried out and the results are evaluated and also uploaded to Moodle. The experiment can only be carried out if the test is successful. For both phases you may receive remarks and requests for revision from the respective supervisor(s). This semester's lab course will consist of an introductory lecture and a simulation of the "sequence control of a sorting plant".
