With respect to the current situation, the Multimedia Communications Lab / Project will be held online.

The Multimedia Communications Lab / Project is offered both in the summer and in the winter term. Students can choose from a wide variety of topics covering all research areas of KOM. All topics (lab and project) are introduced by the respective supervisor during a kickoff seminar at the beginning of each semester. Based on the scope and complexity of the task, it is offered either as lab or as project targeting bachelor or master students in electrical engineering and computer science (more information on the difference between a lab and a project).

Students attending the lab or project should have prior experience in an object-oriented programming language such as Java. Lectures covering basic networking technologies and protocols (e.g., Communication Networks, Net Centric Systems) are also highly recommended. Individual tasks might have more specific requirements, which are stated in the task description. Below, you will find all important dates and deadlines of the lab / project. Make sure to meet the registration deadline with KOM - otherwise, you cannot participate in the lab / project! More details on the registration process are provided here, please read them carefully and contact us if you are in doubt!
