Aims

Students will learn of the aircraft onboard system. The main emphasis is given to the explanation of the on-board information system and its individual sub-systems.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

The attendance at seminars is compulsory (80% at the minimum). The absence (in justifiable cases) can be compensated by personal consultation with the lecturer and working out individually assignments. Individual assignments must be finished and handed in during the course-unit credit week at the latest.
