  • Recognise database systems' performance problems and are able to fix them with according methods
  • Organise and control processes of database systems      
Methodological competence
The students:
  • propose concrete processing principles for special application classes
  • reflect on specific technologies and procedures with regard to their consequences
Social competence
The students:
  • Solve database system problems in a team
The students:
  • Acknowledge the limits of their ability to cope with pressure during the implementation and are aware of failures
  • Reflect their self-perception
