The post-graduate students (first semester, Master studies at the Faculty of Computer Science, UAIC) will achieve both theoretical and practical understanding about the development of complex Web applications, including the (micro-)services, on the basis of the existing Web technologies by using various representations, models, methods, practices, and tools regarding knowledge (meta-data, taxonomies, thesauri, ontologies) – for details, consult the main WADe topics.


The assessment procedure consists of a mandatory WADe project:

Optionally, T – a team-oriented hackathon and/or a technical presentation (public talk, tutorial, study) focused on a specific topic (during lab classes) [to be announced in due time].

Consult the list of WADe Student Technical Talk Topics.

Grading formula is A * 0.1 + S * 0.8 + T * 0.2, with A, S, T ∈ [0, 10].

In order to pass, a student must obtain A >= 6 and S >= 5.
