Internet of Things

(course inactive since 05.07.2022)

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Internet of Things
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
International Project Semester, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2020
Module code: IPS.TEC2a
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.
1V+1LU (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: 1
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Required academic prerequisites (ASPO):

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

IPS.TEC2a (P231-0148) International Project Semester, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2020 , semester 1, mandatory course, course inactive since 05.07.2022

Suitable for exchange students (learning agreement)
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 75 hours (equivalent to 2.5 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 52.5 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended knowledge:
Basic programming skills
Basic understanding of microcontroller based application (e.g. as provided in IPS.TEC1 - Introduction to Arduino)
