Teaching methods

The course is basically offered as a VU (lecture with exercise). In addition to the acquisition of theoretical knowledge, the focus is thus also on the processing of numerous exercises in order to consolidate the knowledge and to demonstrate practical application issues.

Furthermore, elements of the "Flipped Classroom" concept are used. This means that students have to prepare selected content before each unit. These are discussed and deepened during the classroom sessions. This is followed by a follow-up phase (supplementary literature, exercise examples, etc.).

Mode of examination
