Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. understand the architecture and principles of service-oriented computing, transport data formats as well as requirements and methods of data analysis in the service environment

2. evaluate the machine learning methods and models to create enhanced algorithmic and software solutions tailored to the service environment

3. create the required architecture of service systems as well as methods and programme methodologies for big data analysis

4. apply the defined architecture of service-oriented computing, approaches and software for data analysis to data obtained from different sources

5. examine the efficiency and applicability of the service-computing environment, methods and programming solutions for a different source data analysis

6. analyse and modify implemented solutions with the aim of improving performance of service-oriented systems with applications
