details of the certificate
  • The course consists of two parts: In the first part of the semester, lectures on the material are given. In the second part, individual studies (semester-long research projects that include a term paper and a presentation) help to improve understanding of the material.


  • Grading scheme: 40% term paper plus presentation, 60% oral exam (20 min, registration at ICS office in Z1031).


  • Binding registration for the exam (using Thoska or the registration form provided by the examination office IA) is required at the beginning of each semester (check the registration time window which is defined each semester) in order to participate in individual studies projects and the oral exam.
