Distance Learning

For the summer term 2023, TU Wien has planned to have as much face-to-face teaching as possible again. Therefore, we will hold this course in face-to-face format.

If this is not possible due to the COVID-19 situation, we will switch to a distance format: In that case, we will have workshops and discussions held remotely via INSO Jitsi. Moreover, in distance format, the test at the end of the term will be held in tuwel via Zoom instead of face-to-face in a classroom on paper.

For the labs, interviews are planned at the end, which can also be done remotely if necessary.

Should it be necessary to switch to Distance Learning due to the pandemic, we will let you know in tuwel as soon as possible.
