News

Dear students,

I would like to welcome you in the scholl year 2021/2022. The teaching starts on Wednesday 22.9.2021 in room M203/M204 and I do look forward to see you there. In the breakdown of the terms of the course, you will find all the evaluated activities and please, mind that the tmíming of some of them is not yet clear so if you see the date 24.12.2021, it means "not yet clear".

Best regards
