Lecture and Tutorial Tools in Winter Term 17/18

This coarse presents usefull tools (mostly software) for an efficient scientific work. It is rewarded with 4 Credit Points (CP) in 'soft skill' ('übergreifende Kompetenzen'). These CPs are accredited in the MSc TI and in physics. In other faculties, please consult the respective study office. The CPs are given for a regular, active participation in lecture and exercise. Attendance is therefore checked by a list. At most two absents without excuse are allowed. Illness must be justified with an Attest. The two possible absentions can be used to skip the course for topics which are already known. Further absentions cannot be granted. For each subject, exercises must be carried out during the lecture, completion is checked by the lecturer. (There are no more mandatory homework.)

Important Information

The number of participants is restricted to 30 due to limited PC seats available in the CIP pool. Students of MScTI have priority because this is a compulsory module for them. The remaining seats are therefore distributed according to registration order. I ask ALL students (also MScTI!) to register via email after 1.10.2017. Thanks!
