KI570 (P222-0033) Computer Science and Communication Systems, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2014 , semester 5, mandatory 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).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 120 hours (equivalent to 4 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 75 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

Learning outcomes:
This course aims to provide students with a thorough understanding of communication protocols. Students will acquire an understanding of the structure of interfaces and related protocols. Particular attention will be given to teaching the corresponding reference models. Understanding protocols is an important prerequisite for developing the protocol stacks that allow heterogeneous environments to communicate with one another.
