Lectures during the winter semester 2020/21

The courses of the DiK will be held as online teaching in the winter semester 2020/21. The lectures will be digitally broadcasted and supplemented by additional digital materials such as demonstrations and exercises.

Online teaching starts in week 45 (from 02.11.2020) and takes place on the weekdays and at the times specified in the schedule (see TUCaN). The available room details for the individual dates in TUCaN represent the original attendance planning and will be replaced by the online teaching. The technical access to the online teaching takes place via Moodle.

The DiK broadcasts the lectures in the winter semester 2020/21 via livestream. You will find a link to attend the live lecture in the respective Moodle course of the event in the corresponding week. The link leads you to the video platform Youtube, which is used for the live stream.

In the lecture the fundamentals of information and communication technology in mechanical engineering are communicated. The content and curriculum is outlayed for the requirements in engineering for data processing. The basics of information and communication technology include the following topics:

  • Introduction in information and communication technology
  • Methods for object-oriented programme development
  • Data structures and algorithms
  • Mathematical and technical foundations
  • Communication and network technology
  • Methodical application of information and communication technology

The educational objectives of IKT contain the control of the basics of EDP, especially the underlying mathematics and the understanding of programme development as well as knowledge about programming languages and techniques. The capability of developing of data structures and algorithms, the knowledge about the different application systems and the understanding of the relation between operation systems and application software as well as the knowledge about modern Internet technology represent a further base for students of mechanical engineering in the first semester.
