Learning Outcomes

The students possess in-depth practical knowledge in the field of modern, distributed and complex IT systems. They can formulate scientific questions / theses in this field, develop solutions and systematically produce and present results for the validation of the scientific questions.


Today the internet is a natural way to gain access to all kinds of services. For the provider of such services this translates to novel requirements concerning the operation of its IT infrastructure. For instance, high availability and low latency even in high workload situations need to be guaranteed. These topics are part of the research focus of the CIT group. The project sheds light on selected problems in the context of a current research project and is solved autonomously by a team of students. Solving such a complex problem in a team serves the purpose to practice methods learned in the basic studies. This happens under realistic conditions and includes planning, coordination, execution and presentations of results.
