learning outcome

After attending the lectures, students can describe the existing technologies based on radio transmission (e.g. from 100 kHz up to 100 GHz).

They can explain Broadcasting Systems from both a technical point of view and from a political/business point of view.

After attending the course, students are able to develop a media format standard.

After the seminar, the students deepended their knowledge gained in the lecture using selected examples.

After the event, students can correctly assess and evaluate their own achievements and those of their fellow students.
