Welcome! The course starts on Monday January 17 at 8:15 a.m. via Zoom. An email has been sent to you with the Zoom-link (also check your SPAM folder since sometimes the emails end up there). Note we do NOT use Canvas for this course. For obvious reasons most of the course will be done by remote means (Zoom) but things may also change rapidly, so we must all be prepared for modifications to the original plans.
Lectures will start via zoom: the link you received is recurrent and will hopefully work for all lectures etc. However, as Zoom is frequently updated one never knows if things work as planned. Make sure you have the latest update of Zoom installed before Monday morning. All lectures will be recorded and made available to the students. Slides for the first three lectures are available as pdf:s here.
Exercises: The exercise sessions in study week 2-7 have been changed into Q&A sessions. All done via Zoom (using the same link).
Laboratory exercises: We want to provide you with on-campus opprtunity for all three lab exercises. However, that is only possible if we can have full groups (10 students plus teacher). If only one student can sit at each work station then we must reduce the number of labs from 3 to 2. We will decide this later in the course. The labs do not start until study week 4. All standard COVID-19 safety measures will be applied if done on-campus.
Simulation tasks: The material for the two simulation tasks is already available at the course web site.
Exam: Will be done on-campus if that is at all possible.
Make sure you follow updates on this web page on a regular basis. All news and updates as well as the course material will be made available here.
Recordings of all lectures (as they become available) can be found here in the directory "Lecture recordingsÓ. Username and password to access the recordings was sent in your personal email.
So althought the Automation course 2022 will at least start in a similar fashion as in 2021 we are certain that in principle the same quality and standard can be maintained. The lectures are sceduled at Mondays 8:15, Wednesdays 15:15 and Thursdays 8:15 and will all be done live.
Welcome on Monday at 8:15 for a great course. If you have any questions just send an email to
