Wiki Webpage


The wiki webpage of the Communication Group contains a diverse set of articles and is aimed to help the new students get familiar with the available resources as fast as possible. It can also serve as a helpful reference for other students.

The appearance and syntax is very similar to wikipedia's. You need to register for the first time that you enter the website. Please use and contribute to the wiki this way: find what you need in the wiki; if you can't, then write an article when you found the solution. The webpage is currently being developed, and over time will grow into a valuable resource.
