Examination modalities

The proof of performance is in the form of

  • an intermediate examination in the middle of the semester, the aim is to check the competence in the application of a professional system modelling software.
  • an independently in the group elaborated requirement specification (requirements analysis on 12 pages), to be submitted at the end of the semester, the aim here is to check the competence in the application of modelling methods and languages.

In order to take part in an examination, it is necessary to register in time (for the respective examination date) in TISS. Students who do not meet the registration deadline cannot take part in the exam! Enquiries in this regard will not be answered!

Examination Barriers

In accordance with the study regulations (Mitteilungsblatt 2014, 3. Stück; Nr.22), the following rules apply to the cancellation of examinations.
