Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Distributed Systems 1
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Computer Science and Communication Systems, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2014
Module code: KI410
SAP-Submodule-No.:
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.

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

KI410 (P221-0006) Computer Science and Communication Systems, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2014 , semester 4, mandatory course

Suitable for exchange students (learning agreement)
Workload:
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.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
KI200 Programming 2
KI320 Computer Networks
