Exercise Documents

All documents for the experiments can be found on the ILIAS page. Access only for registered students.


Registration runs via a waiting list in the campus student portal. The maximum number of participants is limited due to hardware usage. It is first come, first served. If the available places are not sufficient, students who have the lab as a compulsory subject will be given priority. They will be notified on 14.10.2021 if their registration was successful. ILIAS access will be opened for registered students at the beginning of the semester.

The first date is expected to be Monday 18.10.2021, 14:00-18:00 (introductory event).

Only for students who cannot register in the online portal:

You can register for the microwave engineering lab by handing in your admission slip in room 1.28, building 30.10. You will be added to the same waiting list as of the date you hand in your slip. Due to the current situation, be sure to announce your registration by email, as the building is currently not generally accessible. Contact: thomas henauer does-not-exist.kit edu
