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.
4PA (4 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: according to optional course list
Mandatory course: no
Language of instruction:
Short paper and presentation

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 150 hours (equivalent to 5 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 105 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:
Module coordinator:
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ahmad Osman
Lecturer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ahmad Osman

Learning outcomes:
Students will learn the practical and scientific methods of project work by writing a paper based on examples, problems and applications from the field of signal and image processing with AI, e. g. research on the state of knowledge and technology in image processing, classification methods, regression procedures, data compression, data reconstruction, human-machine interaction, literature research (also in English), presentation of project results.
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to document and explain their approach. They will be able to defend and explain their results achieved using the engineering knowledge they have acquired. This will enable them to illustrate the use of the above methods within project work.
