Ablauf der LV bei eingeschränktem Campusbetrieb

For the class in Information Systems Engineering the preferred alternative scenario would be a hybrid mode: in class and via online stream.

Only if absolutely necessary this class would switch to full distance learning.

A change of the classes mode might also influence the required assignments (e.g. number of assignments, scope, evaluation, ...) and/or the format of the final exam. Necessary alterations will be communicated together with the announcement of the mode’s shift.

! Important information !

The Covid19 pandemic causes several uncertainties for the upcoming winter semester starting on October 5th. If possible within the valid health regulations, the Information Systems program plans to fully return to the usual mode of classroom teaching with mandatory attendance. Nonetheless, an additional “plan B”-scenario for distance and/or hybrid teaching will be prepared for every class, which can be enabled if needed.

The program management will reevaluate the situation in September and decides then whether the classes will indeed start in the usual mode or in an alternative scenario. This decision will be announced in the syllabus until September 25 [for the classes starting in the mid of the semester until November 13].

We’re aware that the issue of visa is currently delayed and we’ll include this matter into our considerations. Should you be affected by such a delay, please inform us as soon as possible via
