Autumn Course (NES)

Welcome to the RoboLab Autumn Course!

This lab for NES master students is offered every year in the winter semester and is done in small groups. Problems in the field of computer science will be solved by using practical programming tasks. The students will gain skills in programming and first experiences in project and team work. After a brief introduction, the students then have time until the end of the year to solve a given task independently. Tutors will provide consultations and help the students.

There are two RoboLab courses!
This course is offered only for NES students.
