Under strict conditions and with special permit of the principal the first "Corona sessions" at the HFT Stuttgart took place.
Equipped with a mask and complying the needed distance, the first students of the Surveying and Geoinformatics study programme were led to a measurement exercise in stereo photogrammetry by Prof. Dr. Eberhard Gülch. Due to the special hardware and software it was necessary to perform the exercise in the Laboratory for Interpretation and Measurement of Imaging Sensors (LIMES).
This successful exercise on stereo evaluation devices was the start for further presence exercises in the field of surveying. In June and July, with considerable effort, a number of further outdoor presence exercises, which are indispensable for the study courses, will also take place.
In order to comply with distance and hygiene rules, equipment is disinfected, disinfectants are provided for our students, precautions are taken to maintain minimum distances, face masks are prescribed and exercises are staggered over time, which of course dramatically increases the number of staff required.
The flexibility of our students, our colleagues and the intensive organisational preparation continue to enable a practice-oriented and excellent quality of teaching in the field of surveying, even during the drastic restrictions caused by the pandemic.
