Dependable Systems

Aim

Technical and methodical skills: methods of scientific work, life in academia.

Cognitive and practical skills: systematic investigation, presentation techniques, structured and concise communication in presentations and writing, applying skills acquired in the courses of the curriculum to an assigned task.

Social competence, qualifications in innovation, creativity: self management, personal responsibility and initialtive, capacity for teamwork, finding creative solutions, reflection about ones work within the technical and social context.

Subject

Students do a literature search, write a scientific report, and make a presentation about a selected topic that is in scope of the focus of the curriculum. The findings of this work are presented in a written report and an oral presentation.

Didactic concept: At the beginning of the course the topic of investigation is discussed with the supervisor. Once the topic has been fixed students work on the topic and regularly report to the supervisor, to get feedback on the work done, to report and discuss problems, and to plan further actions.

Introduction to practical assignment: date to be announced  (time and location as usual)

 

First Lecture: March 2018 (date to be announced)

Day/time: Thursday, 16:00-18:00

Location: EI 8, Pötzl HS

 

Course Structure

 

The course comprises a series of lectures and a practical part. Lectures will be held on a weekly basis (see above for time and location). In the practical part, students explore reliability and cost parameters of a little case study by means of a modeling tool.

 

An introduction to the practical part will be given in one of the lectures in the second half of the semester. In that lecture, the practical assignments will be distributed. Course participants will be asked to form groups of two or three students that cooperate on the assignment. They are expected to document their work and the results of the assignment in a lab protocol, and to submit this lab protocol at the end of the semester.

 

Registration for the practical part of the course is not required. Student are automatically registered by submitting their lab protocol.

 

Grading

 

Grades are based on the scores for the oral exam (75%) and for the lab protocol (25%).
