Learning objectives and assessment

Passed courses are assessed on a scale of 1 to 5. The assessment criteria are presented for grades 1, 3 and 5.

The overall learning objective of the course is that the student knows the purpose, principles and types of enterprise architecture as well as the most commonly implemented models. After completing the course, the student recognises the methods of the models and has methodological knowledge of the most common enterprise architectures.

After completing the course, the student will be able to apply their knowledge to the development of enterprise architecture.

1The student is able to describe what enterprise architectures are and how they are built. The student understands their purpose and recognises the importance of enterprise architecture for organisations

Grade 3
In addition, the student has the vision and the ability to participate in the development of enterprise architectures; is able to work on the most common referenced architectures due to the methodological knowledge gained during the course; has the ability to take on roles in developing and maintaining an enterprise architecture.

Learning methods

Depending on the implementation, earning takes place in contact lessons, independent studies, teamwork and online-studies, the course includes the assessment of one’s own learning.

Recognition of prior learning (RPL)

If students have acquired the required competence in previous work tasks, recreational activities or on another course, they can show their competence via a demonstration and thus progress faster through their studies. More information and instructions for recognising and validating prior learning (RPL) are available at MyNet.

Cooperation with the business community

The studies and learning assignments seek to mirror everyday business in corporations and other organisations. Students apply their learning within their current work environment.

International dimension

Depending on the implementation, student backgrounds and work environments will bring an international perspective to the course. Internationality can also be present through cases, books, articles and assignments.
