  2. Architecture of distributed MM applications
  3. Design of distributed applications
  4. Development of distributed MM applications
  5. Distributed data management and security aspects
  6. Further topics
Mode of Delivery

The event will be held in a seminar. The students work on the basis of selected current technologies as part of smaller development projects
