Fluid Mechanics



Time and place

Geschäftsstelle des Elitestudiengangs Advanced Materials and Processes (MAP)

  • Fry 10:15-11:45, Room LSTM-SR (exclude vac) ICS

Prerequisites / Organizational information

Since the course Fluid Mechanics is part of the international program MAP, lectures and tutorials will be given online until further notice.

Hereby students who are currently still located in their home country due to the pandemic situation are able to follow the course.

Further details will be given during the first lecture on 22.10.2021 (08:15-09:45 o’clock). This lecture will be organized via Zoom.

Please establish your own FAU account, see for example:



Further information (especially: Link to the first Zoom lecture) and documents will be provided via the StudOn page of the course:


Please sign up as soon as possible to make sure that all updates will reach you:


Use FM-MAP21 to get access.
