Additional information

The course consists of lecture and exercise parts. The exercises are split in 4 individually graded units and all of them must be completed subsequently.

In winter semester 2020  lectures and exercises for „VU Programmieren 2 (360.017)“ will be performed in a hybrid form. The assignment of exercise tasks and their subsequent submission are done via the TUWEL system. 

Each exercise is designed as a two-week cycle. The exercise tasks are completed in the first week and submitted in a video conference the following week during a previously selected appointment. Before this submission, a multiple-choice test must be completed, which can be repeated until the necessary minimum number of points (80%) is reached.

IMPORTANT:   Pay special attention to registration modalities given below. Also read further  information about the course in the provided lecture material.

Please add this course to your favorites in TISS, so you can be notified about all important announcements.



Examination modalities

Online exams after 2nd  practical excercise (mid-term exam) and after 4th practical excercise (final exam).

Every student who has successfully completed the practical exercises before 2020 can take the final exam instead of taking the oral exam.

The oral exam for students who have successfully completed the face-to-face exercises is, according to its concept, performable exclusively as face-to-face exam and will be offered again once the regulations are made to allow for face-to-face exams.  From July 2023 the online final exam is in every case mandatory.
