Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to

- solve a practical technical problem
- conduct a leterature search for related solutions
- documentt their results in a scientific form in a written report
- present and defend their results in an oral presentation
- to accomplish time management in a small project

Subject of course

Developing a solution for a practical problem and writing-up the results in a final report.

Teamwork is possible, provided that the individually assigned tasks are clearly identified.

A list of topics can be found via the course homepage below; own suggestions for topics within our primary areas of expertise (fault-tolerant distributed real-time systems, embedded systems, VLSI design) are also encouraged.


Teaching methods

In an initial personal meeting with the advisor, the actual task and a working title, as well as the cornerstones of the final report, are specified; the required prerequisites are also checked on that occasion. Regular meetings during the work are used for presenting and discussing both progress and encountered problems (please report severe problems immediately, though). Towards the end of the work, a detailed structure of the to be written final report must be negotiated with your advisor.
