  • Must be able to understand and analyse various embedded systems
  • Must be able to understand and analyse scheduling and guaranties on deadlines for embedded systems

Competences

  • Must be able to handle real time embedded systems and laboratory setups in study- or work-related contexts
  • Must be able to independently engage in professional and interdisciplinary collaboration with a professional approach within the context of real time embedded systems
  • Must be able to identify his/her own learning needs within the real time systems including the embedded systems and structure such learning accordingly.

Type of instruction

The programme is based on a combination of academic, problem-oriented and interdisciplinary approaches and organised based on the following work and evaluation methods that combine skills and reflection:

  • Lectures
  • Classroom instruction
  • Project work
  • Workshops
  • Exercises (individually and in groups)
  • Teacher feedback
  • Reflection
  • Portfolio work

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 5 ECTS course module, the work load is expected to be 150 hours for the student.
