Developing Graphical User Interfaces with an Integrated Development Environment in C/C++

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Developing Graphical User Interfaces with an Integrated Development Environment in C/C++
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Energy system technology / Renewable energies, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2022
Module code: EE1639
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
2V (2 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 4
Mandatory course: no
Language of instruction:
Project work

Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

EE1639 (P211-0313) Energy system technology / Renewable energies, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2022 , semester 4, optional course
E2584 Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2018 , semester 5, optional course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
30 class hours (= 22.5 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 90 hours (equivalent to 3 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 67.5 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing the course, students will be familiar with the development of graphical user interfaces for Windows operating systems with the help of an integrated development environment in the C/C++ programming language using class libraries. They will be familiar with the development of intuitive, dialog-based user interfaces, in particular the use of graphical control elements (controls).
