Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

The academic assessment will be done by a written exam of 90 minutes. Assignments checking knowledge verify the familiarity with components of modern database systems; programming assignments verify the ability to implement and critically evaluate advanced algorithms and data structures of the database components; small scenarios with defined architectures and applications have to be set up with the methods learnt which verifies the ability to develop precise partial solutions.

Exam Repetition

The exam may be repeated at the end of the semester.
