Exam Guidelines

The exam consists of a group project with a presentation, a test on advanced SQL and an individual oral examination.

Project (40% of the final grade):
The project must be carried out in a group (consisting of 2 or 3 candidates). The topic must be agreed in advance with the instructors and must be inherent to the course program. The project must include:
- a design part, an experimental implementation and / or comparison / experimentation part of software systems for the management of big data applied to a particular domain identified for the project
- a short report (max. 4 pages) to describe the activity carried out
- a repository with the produced code

Project presentation:
- Short presentation (max. 20 minutes) by the project team: the presentation of the problem, the approach used to solve it, critical analysis of the experience, and conclusions. A discussion of the project will follow with questions. Each candidate must present the part of the project for which he is responsible.

Test on advanced SQL (30% of the final grade):
- The test can be taken during the lesson break or as first step of the individual oral exam

Individual oral exam (30% of the final grade):
- Three open questions per candidate that can range across the entire program

The individual oral exam can only be taken after successfully passing the test on advanced SQL and the presentation of the group project. The dates of the tests can be agreed with the instructors (via MS Teams).
