The course provides an introduction to project, team theory, team collaboration, team building and computer architecture. Theory about team and project work will be put into practice through a team-based project. This is a joint basic introductory subject which must consist of 3 main parts:
1. Team theory 2.5 credits
This part will provide a basic introduction to theory related to teamwork and practice of the theory through team formation, team development and conflict management.
2. Project as a form of work 3 credits
This part will provide a basic introduction to theory related to project work. Furthermore, a specific group-based project must be carried out (formation, implementation, administration, documentation and control). Other topics affiliated with this project that are covered, are the use of a version control system, how to communicate one's own competence as well as written and oral presentation skills.
3. Computer architecture 2 credits
We look at the structure and operation of a computer. A brief description of each main component in the computer is given. It outlines how the various components work and how they are connected together. It also describes the structure and operation of the cache, and introduces the principle of locality, which is important in computer architecture. System architecture and modern processor architecture, number systems, data representation and data arithmetic as well as an introduction to digital electronics and Boolean algebra.
