According to the University's policy and measures in the current situation of COVID-19:

  • The course Wireless Communications in Summer Term 2020 will be provided as scheduled.
  • We are currently providing this course online, until future decisions are eventually made. The access to course materials (slides, exercises, solutions, lab report template, etc.) has been shared via Email to every registered student. If you have not received these information please let us know.
  • We are currently using OpenOlat as online course platform, the access link to our Course Group as well as the AdobeConnect sessions have been shared via Email to every registered student. If you have not received these information please let us know.
  • The final examination of Wireless Communication, as all other exams, will be organized in Summer Term 2020. The time and room of the exam is in the KIS system available. The students who are not able to be present at the exam due to COVID-19 reasons (e.g. containment or travel ban) should contact us in advance of the exam with evidence of the unavailability to attend, and take the exam at the next opportunity (i.e. in February/March 2021).
