Objectives:„Digitalisation“ is a keyword to change and determine our living environment. Data transport over Networks of Digital Infrastructure will influence the technical development and by that alter our world.

Based on their knowledge on information transport, students learn the general procedures of locally or remotely digital transmitting information over different waveguides or by wireless.

They can determine the achievable bit rates of the different transmission procedures under various error-inducing physical conditions. By that strategic network planning can be carried out.

Students can plan and design line networks under real environmental conditions, both in buildings and outside. They learn to use GIS-based methods and to apply methods for preservation of quality.
