          Important Notice for the course "Tunnel Operation" in Summer Semester 2022

          The Tunnel Operation Course will be a (voluntary) hybrid event.

          Generally, the lectures and exercises will take place in presence, but we will run the event via Zoom at the same time, record it and put it in the Moodle learning room later. However, this is a voluntary offer from our side and if there are transmission problems, e.g. due to technical problems, then the event will not be repeated separately. Instead, a recording from the previous semester will be shown and any differences will be pointed out. The documents (script and slides) will be available on Moodle in any case and thus all necessary learning materials will be provided.
