Applied Informatics, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2017
Module code: PIB-PR1
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:
Written exam

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

DFIW-PRG1 (P610-0182) Computer Science and Web Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2019 , semester 3, mandatory course
PIB-PR1 (P221-0031) Applied Informatics, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2017 , 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.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:
PIB-DB Databases
PIB-PA Project work
PIB-PR2 Programming 2
PIB-PR3 Programming 3

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will:
_ be proficient in the basic language elements (data types, expressions, control structures) of Java.
_ have grasped the concepts of object orientation (classes, objects, inheritance, polymorphism) and be able to implement them.
_ be able to apply the concept of exception handling in programs that they have developed themselves.
_ be able to use basic classes of the Java API (for example, strings, input/output, exception classes).
_ be able to develop algorithms for simple problems in small teams and implement them in a well-structured manner.
