4. Intended learning outcomes

Student is able to analyse business processes, to define their data/information requirements, to asses the possibility and feasibility of their further informatisation, to develop relevant data and process models and to actively participate in information-systems development projects.

5. Learning and teaching methods

  • Lecture: within lectures students gain basic theoretical and applicable knowledge from the studied filed.
  • Practical work: Within tutorial they apply gained theoretical knowledge on concrete practical cases.
  • Seminar paper: Students apply gained knowledge on selected case study as seminar paper. Case studies are presented, discussed and critically evaluated in front of audience.
