Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will have mastered the three components of the Qt framework: Qt widget, QML/QtQuick and the input/output framework. They will be able to use these components to develop desktop applications with a graphical user interface and access to
common data sources (file system, database, http web service).  
In addition, they will demonstrate and deepen the knowledge they have acquired in this subject area in a project.
