Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


- Implementation of a software application or subapplication in teams
- Application specific methods and systems according to the current state of the art
- Techniques for documentation and presentation of results or intermediate results in application development

This module is offered by many lecturers and deals with different contents according to their focus in research and teaching (e.g., data bases, compiler construction, information systems, networks, group ware, graphics, robotics, image processing).

Learning Outcome

Participants command the development of an application in an advanced area of expertise, coming from the area of the respective chair (e.g., data bases, information systems, networks, group ware, graphics, robotics, image processing) using a methodologically clean approach. They are able to use application specific methods and systems that meet the current state of the technology. In teams they work in a goal oriented way. The participants have the competence to document their approach and present the results.


Basic knowledge of the specific subject area may be necessary (elective course).

Learning and Teaching Methods

The participants apply rigorous software engineering in an advanced project in small teams according to a specificattion and with tight schedule (design, implementation, test). Partial results of the team work are communicated in presentations. The individual phases of system building are to be documented.

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

Type of Assessment: project work

Different phases of a software project (especially definition, design, development, implementation, documentation, test) along a specific application in an advanced area of expertise are worked on by the participants in teams. Single teams may work only on a subset of all the phases. Current state of the art application specific methods and systems are applied. The obtained results are documented in written form and orally presented, if applicable. It is announced in advance how the single activities will be weighted to calculate the module grade.

Exam Repetition

There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
