Subject of course

Within this lecture the following theoretical content on will be discussed:

  • Definition and scope

Parallel to the lectures an accompanying exercise will be held in which the topics discussed during the lecture are to be substantiated. During the exercise, student-groups will analyze use cases and architecture of a specific telemedicine application. An exemplary implementation of the findings completes the exercise.

Didactic Approach: The research group provides competent engineering perspectives. For this lecture this means: provide the necessary technical basis, definition and delineation, guidance for situational research, presentation of real, often large case studies as part of the lecture, independent development, testing and experience in the lecture adequate concept formation, sub-projects and applications in the field of telemedicine as part of the exercise.
