    1. Objectives and competences

    The primary objective of this course is to introduce students a Web as a distributed system and the use of online technologies on the client and server-side. The acquired knowledge will enable students to develop their own webpages, websites and web applications.

    2. Content

    • Introduction – web technologies
    • Internet (computer, network)
    • Web (WWW) – distributed document-based system
    • Web architecture (client-server model, communication, naming, ...)
    • Standards and protocols
    • Client programming: (X)HTML, Script programming (JavaScript, jQuery, ...)
    • Server programming (PHP, CGI, servlet, ...)
    • Web Search technologies and resource extraction  (portal, Search engine, Forum, ...)
    • Meta- language XML (naming, XML checking, presentation formats, XML applications
    • XML based web services (SOAP, WSDL, UDDI), RESTful
    • Web engineering (methodologies and startegies of web application design, customer support)
    • Web application security (users, identity, certificates, encryption)
    • Semantic web

    4. Intended learning outcomes

    Knowledge and understanding:

    • Knowledge of web (Internet) presented as a distributed system that operates on the principle of client-server model.
    • Understanding the development and programming of web applications, services at the level of engineering work.


    • Use of web technologies in the area of web engineering, both at the client side as server side.


    • Insight and understanding of the theory of web technology and its application in practical work, both in the laboratory and in real applications.

    Transferable skills:

    • Design and development of web solutions in various engineering, as well as other areas.

    5. Learning and teaching methods

    • Lectures and individual work in connection with seminars and project work in laboratory should on the basis of linking approach meet the study objectives.

    6. Assessment

    • Continuing (homework, seminars, project work) (50%)
    • Final: (written and oral exam) (50%)
