Aims

Theoretical fundamentals and practical know-how of applied sensorics. Sensor applications are pointed to automation and mechatronics. Acquired knowledge enables students to integrate into realisation teams solving system development, projection and production of intelligent systems and interdisciplinary tasks in engineering practice.

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

Attendance at lectures is recommended, attendance at seminars is monitored. Maximally two absence are compensated by individual missing laboratory reports working out.
