The teaching of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and Engineering is rapidly changing by the fast-paced development of novel technology and paradigms. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has abruptly modified the way of teaching, especially in hands-on lab courses. The aim of the IEEE German Education Conference (GECon) is to bring together researchers and teachers to discuss and expand the status-quo of teaching at German academic institutions, in
order to educate graduates on the skillset required by the industry.
