More Information

Intended audience:

  • Diploma students: Hauptstudium Informatik I (Praktische Informatik)
  • Senior bachelor students with interest in pursuing a bachelor's thesis in this area
  • Master students (Informatik, Wirtschaftsinformatik, Bioinformatik)
  • Grundstudium Informatik, or first two years of Bachelor Informatik, Wirtschaftsinformatik, Bioinformatik
  • The class consists of both a weekly lecture and weekly exercises!
  • Exercises constitute half of the credits and thus will make up half of the grade (exam questions).
