Admission information


After participating in the module, students will be able to understand the basics of cyber-physical systems (CPS), apply scientific methods for literature research independently, analyze CPS described in literature and subsequently evaluate them.

Teaching and learning methods

In order to optimally support the students, a small group size is aimed at for this module. Due to the small number of participants, the teaching method consists of individual professional and methodical discussions between lecturer and student as well as presentations by lecturer and students in front of the group followed by open discussions.


The learning outcomes of the students are checked by means of a report (including a presentation). At the end of the seminar, students submit a written report of their literature review, which is graded by the lecturer (70%). In addition, the students must prepare a presentation that will be presented to the students and lecturer and will be graded (30%).
