  • Purpose and learning objectives

    The purpose of this core area is to develop students' competencies to develop contemporary web applications using programming paradigms and taking advantage of current, standardised protocols and the possibilities of the client/server model. Furthermore, students should develop an understanding of basic design and visual communication. This core area should also enable students to design simple user interfaces using aesthetic and communicative principles.

    Knowledge

    The student has development-based knowledge of: practice, applied theory and methods of development within:
    • relevant Internet and web protocols,
    • quality assurance
    The student can understand and reflect on:
    • development methods in web development,
    • web architecture and design patterns,

    Skills

    The student will get the skills to:
    • master all stages of development including planning, developing and implementing web applications based on concrete development requests, as well as evaluating practice-orientated and theoretical issues and selecting and justifying relevant options in relation to the development of web applications
    • evaluate and justify the choice of a suitable programming language and relevant methodologies for the implementation of web applications,
    • master a suitable programming language to develop web applications
    • implement and assess web user interfaces as well as justify and communicate solution proposals to partners and users
    • use relevant theories and methods of quality assurance for all phases of development

    Competences

    The student will learn to:
    • manage complex web development and development-orientated situations in web development
    • independently engage in academic and interdisciplinary cooperation in a professional manner and assume responsibility within the framework of professional ethics in relation to web programming
    • identify and structure their own learning needs and develop their own knowledge, skills and competencies in relation to web programming

  • Type of instruction
    The course is based on Problem-Based Learning. The students must apply their knowledge in developing an application project, where the student must also acquire new knowledge on their own to complete the development. The teacher will act as a supervisor in the development project, so the students are not left on their own.
