In this module, the competences acquired in Practical Computer Science I and II are to be deepened and practiced on the basis of larger tasks. In particular, the following aspects should be addressed in the tasks being solved in small groups on site:

  • Requirement specification
  • Object-oriented development methods
  • Design patterns in object-oriented programming
  • Use of efficient data structures
  • Generic programming with Lambdas.
  • Components and modularization
  • Quality assurance (e.g. module and integration tests)

Qualification Goals

Students should

  • deepen knowledge in the field of programming and apply it to larger problems,
  • learn how to use software development environments and reuse software libraries to create larger programs,
  • to be able to select, test, evaluate and apply suitable methods from computer science to given problems.
  • to process and document achieved results in writing in a suitable manner,
  • gain experience in teamwork and work organization while working on tasks.


Translation is missing. Here is the German original:

Keine. Empfohlen werden die Kompetenzen aus den Modulen Objektorientierte Programmierung, Deklarative Programmierung sowie Algorithmen und Datenstrukturen


The module can be attended at FB12 in study program(s)

When studying B.Sc. Computer Science, this module must be completed in the study area Practical Modules in Computer Science.

The module can also be used in other study programs (export module).
