Organization of the SZZ at the Department of Informatics

Organization of the SZZ at KI

  1. To ensure the course of the SZZ, a committee is proposed and approved, which consists of sub-committees for individual subjects. Each student takes an examination in two compulsory subjects and in a subject determined by his/her professional field of study.
  2. Course selection: the
    following courses are compulsory for the field of Applied Informatics: theoretical foundations of informatics and information and communication technologies. The candidate chooses the third subject, which has the same name as his/her field of study. Theoretical Foundations of Informatics and Information and Communication Technologies are also compulsory subjects
    for the double-degree study of Informatics. There are, however, two differences from Applied Informatics:
    1. The subject Information and Communication Technology has different test circuits.
    2. If the candidate chooses two subjects from the second field of study, then in the field of Informatics he/she chooses only one subject from the subjects Theoretical Foundations of Informatics and Information and Communication Technologies.
  3. CI will prepare a schedule of students for each exam.
  4. Students take oral examinations in individual subjects before a sub-committee for the subject. Each sub-committee will work independently according to a timetable to be prepared by the CI. The chair of the sub-committee is responsible for testing all students according to the timetable and completing the examination report.
  5. The examination report must include the questions the student has drawn, the final mark together with the number of points awarded and the signatures of the examiners.
  6. In the event that more than one examiner will be examining a given subject, it must be specified which subjects each examiner will be examining, including any substitution.
  7. Each student takes out 2 questions during the course exam and answers them afterwards.
  8. Immediately after the examination, the chairman of the sub-committee will tell the student whether he/she has passed or failed, but will not give a grade. If the student has failed, it is up to the student to decide whether or not to continue.


  1. The exams will be conducted in two separate blocks within one day with a one hour lunch break. A maximum of 6 students will be scheduled in both the morning and afternoon blocks. Therefore, a maximum of 12 students will be tested in one day.
  2. The morning session will run from 8am to 12pm and the afternoon session will run from 1pm to 5pm. If fewer students are scheduled in a block, the schedule will be adjusted accordingly. Thus, the lunch break is scheduled from 12 noon to 1 pm.
  3. Each block will begin with the introduction of the committee and the registered students and will end with the announcement of the examination results of all students who have taken the examinations in the given block.
  4. A total of 30 minutes per student is counted for a partial examination in one subject. This time will be used as follows: 20 + 5 minutes to answer the 2 questions the student has drawn and any additional questions from the committee members. Supplementary questions should be directed mainly at the context and overlap of the topic under examination. The aim is definitely not to compete who is the greater expert and to waste time with unnecessary discussions. The remaining 5 minutes are for the committee to deliberate on whether or not the student has passed the exam and to announce this result to the student.
  5. Each member of the board shall make a proposal of the examination grade and the proposed number of points and record it in a prepared table. At the end of the block, the committee will deliberate and determine the final grades and point counts for all students who were included in the block and these results will be recorded in the minutes. An alternative approach can be imagined in that the final result of a student will be determined immediately after his/her examination.
  6. A short break of about 15 minutes for a snack can be planned during each session. This is at the discretion of the sub-committee and also depends on the number of students enrolled in the block.
  7. The remaining time after the end of the work of the sub-committees will be used to prepare the final reports of individual students and to announce the overall results for the block.
