Graduates with a Bachelor’s degree
The online part of the study programme takes place in self-study and in the form of group work. For the self-study part of the programme, video lectures with detailed information about the contents and an elaborated script are offered. The script has been developed especially for extra-occupational learners in regard to the didactic concept of Ulm University. It contains breaks for independent study, multiple and single choice tests, quizzes, exercises, etc.
Your mentor will offer online seminars in periodic intervals. These seminars will help you to handle the exercises and work on the learning topics.
An online forum for exchange with the other students will also be available.
For successful participation in this module it is important to know the principles of Analog Circuit Design and Radio Frequency Engineering as well as fundamental knowledge of transistor function (pHEMT, MOSFET, BJT).
