The course is open to all students. Unfortunately, it is not part of the standard curriculum of physics. However, it can be taken as "fächerübergreifende Schlüsselqualifikation" (SQ, Kompetenzbereich 1) for 3 CP, so at least Physics BSc students can use it in their curriculum.

The participants of the course are expected to have some basic knowledge about computer usage (e.g. using a text editor). Some programming skills are also an advantage, but not required.

Application

The number of participants is limited!

We have ~25 computers in the CIP-pool to do the hands-on sessions. If too many people apply, we can set up a second hands-on session group in our seminar room for people that bring their own laptop (WLAN is accessible). If there are more than 50 applications, the people in higher terms will be preferred.

  • Name
  • Email-Address
  • Registration number (Matrikelnummer)
  • Study subject (Studienfach)
  • Term of studying (Fachsemester)
  • If you have an ICP account, please send us the login name
  • Do you have a laptop with a LaTeX distribution (e.g. TeXlive or MikTeX) that you could use in the hands-on sessions?
