You can find the course in the Moodle course catalogue of the current summer semester. Please send us an e-mail for enrollment only if self-enrollment does not work.


We offer an exercise via zoom in small groups which are supervised by tutors. The exercises are used to deepen the course content and to practice programming skills on your own computer using the software Eclipse.

An independent registration to exercise groups via TUCaN does not apply.
