implementation of relational databases
database searches by means of a data query language
transaction management and rollback in information systems
client server programming and user interfaces.
The student masters skills related to the use ofCompetences
methods and theory for modifying data in and retrieving data from a database
methods and theories for the development of client-server applications
methods for the development of graphical user interfaces.
The student is able to handle complex and development-oriented issues regarding
construction and testing of databases
programming a client server application
implementation of user interfaces in client server systems.
The student is able to identify their own learning requirements and develop their own knowledge, skills and competencies in relation to
client-server applications, databases and database programming.
- Type of instruction
During class there will be both group work and lectures
The learning outcomes of the exam are identical with the learning outcomes of the subject(s)/modul(es)Exam in one or more subjectsSubject/module is tested with the following modulesType of examOral examinationThe part-exams that are weighted 20% are written exams.
The part-exams test whether the learning objectives for the individual semester modules have been. However, the part-exams that are weighted 20% focus mainly on the learning objectives for the knowledge and skills categories.
The part-exam that is weighted 60% is a written assignment with an individual oral defence.
It is the project submitted by the student that serves as the starting point for the oral part of the part-exam that is weighted 60%. The 60% part-exam tests the learning objectives within the categories of knowledge, skills and competencies for all the semester modules.
The oral exam lasts 30 min. incl. grading. An overall grade is given according to the 7-point grading scale.
At the start of the semester, the Head of Programme may decide that the two part-exams that are weighted 20% each can be combined into one part-exam weighted 30%. If so, the weighting of the 60% part-exam will be increased to 70%. Students will be informed about such a combination of part-exams at the start of the semester.
If part-exams weighted 20% each are combined, the resulting 30% part-exam need not be passed. The part-exam that is weighted 70% must be passed, and the total weighted result must be at least 02. The grade of 02 cannot be obtained by rounding up.
The overall grade for the second semester is the weighted average of module 4 case,module 5 case and theexam project.The total grade is rounded to the nearest grade in the 7-point grading scaleaccording to the arithmetic rounding method.However, there is no rounding up to the grade of 02. The total grade for the 2. semester is the weighted average of the grade for the module 4 case(weights 20%)!The grade forthe module 5 case (weights 20%) Grades for exam project (weights 60%)The semester is passed when the student achieves a total grade of 02 as a minimum and meets the prerequisite conditions for each module and the exam project. If the semester is not passed, the exam project must be re-taken.Formal requirementsThe exam project must be interdisciplinary and problem oriented.
The School lays down the actual requirements for the project, which will combine essential fields of the 2rd semester teaching. The School must secure that the project description is given to the students and the examiners.
Handing in Report
The report must not exceed 35 standard pages excluding appendices. Appendices should be kept to a minimum.Individual exam or group examGroup, 2-7 max participantsExam languagesDanish(Norwegian/Swedish)Duration1. Individual presentation based on report: 5 minutes.
2. Individual examination: 20 minutes.
3. Discussion of performance and announcement of grade: 5 minutes.Type of evaluation7-point grading scaleExaminersInternal censureExam criteriaThe student will receive an individual grade for the overall performance covering report,
presentation and individual examination. The evaluation of the performance is based on the
degree to which it complies with the purpose and learning objectives of the subjects, as described in the curriculum.
Part-exams that are weighted 20% need not be passed. The part-exam that is weighted 60% must be passed, and the total weighted result must be at least 02. The grade of 02 cannot be obtained by rounding up.
In the subject Software Construction 2 you will receive 62 hours of instruction, which corresponds to 82 lessons (1 lesson = 45 min.) and 45% of your total workload for the subject.
The teaching primarily consists of the following activities: internal lecturers.
The preparation primarily consists of the following activities: reading the curriculum.
