The knowledge and skills in a selected area of computer science are deepened. The students can select from a set of offered subjects. It is assumed that the participants know the concepts taught in the mandatory modules on computer science and that they are able to apply then corresponding methods. It is possible to continue deepening the selected topic when writing the bachelor thesis. This module enables the students to deepen their knowledge in a selected area of computer science. Possible areas are e.g. “Computer Networks”, “Distributed Systems”, “Mainframe Computing” and “IT Security”. In addition to the new material, the students learn in the seminar how to write a scientific paper on a specific topic based on a previous study of the relevant literature. Moreover, they learn how to present this topic orally in a well-structured and understandable way using state-of-the-art tools (such as e.g. Powerpoint). The required soft skills w.r.t. to presentation technique are conveyed in a private discussion with a tutor.
