- Explain fundamental principles for programming of real time systems with time and resource limitations.
- Describe the foundation for programming languages developed for real time programming.
- Account for how real time operating systems are designed and functions.
- Describe what a real time network is.
- Use real time system programming languages and real time operating systems for real time applications.
- Analyse real time systems with regard to keeping time and resource restrictions.
- Programming languages intended for real time systems, support in ordinary programming languages, e.g. "Ada tasking"
- Real time operating system (RTOS)
- System support: scheduling, resource handling
- Design and analysis of real time system software
- Modelling and verification of real time systems
- Reliability and fault tolerance
- Fault recovery

Lectures, lessons, assignments, labs and project.
Written test and assignments. The theory part consists of 7 credits and the practical part of 3 credits.
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
