Programming 1

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Programming 1
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Computer Science and Communication Systems, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2022
Module code: KIB-PRG1
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.
4V+2P (6 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:

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

KIB-PRG1 (P222-0029) Computer Science and Communication Systems, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2021 , semester 1, mandatory course
KIB-PRG1 (P222-0029) Computer Science and Communication Systems, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2022 , semester 1, mandatory course
PRI-PRG1 (P222-0029) Production Informatics, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2023 , semester 1, 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).
90 class hours (= 67.5 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 240 hours (equivalent to 8 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 172.5 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to explain the concepts of procedural programming and data abstraction and implement them in the C programming language. They will use design techniques to find solutions. They will use their knowledge about programming techniques, to create well-structured and documented programs. They will use basic tools from the field of software development to do so. In the practical course, students will learn to present programs and their solution concepts.
