- The students have gained knowledge in tools and methodologies used to develop "state-of-the-art" computer applications.
- The students have acquired knowledge regarding importance of different quality attributes including security.

- The students are capable of using "state-of-the-art" tools and methodologies in development work.
- The students are capable of designing and developing software to meet a set of quality requirements.
- The students are capable of planning and conducting systematic testing of software and systems.
- The students can write technical reports documenting the process and the product.

General Competence:
- The students have gained experience in technical writing.
- The students have gained experience working in groups
- The students have increased their understanding of professional practice in the field of applied computer science.

Learning methods and activities

- Group work
- Project work
- Reflection
- Seminars
- Supervision

Additional information:
The projects will be organised in groups, ideally, more than three students per group. Project groups may be distributed to allow distant students to participate in the group work. Recordings from the seminars will be made available on the Internet.

Obligatory coursework:
Students should participate in the seminars by presenting project status and sharing their experiences/reflections on the project work. Students who cannot participate physically, need to submit written or recorded contributions in advance.

Further on evaluation

The assessment will be based on:
- A group report shared by all group members documenting the results of the work and reflecting on the group's work and contributions
- An individual report written by each student documenting the student's own experiences and reflections
- An individual, oral exam

All parts must be passed individually.

Re-sit examination for the oral exam in August. No resit for the projects/reports.

Specific conditions

Admission to a programme of study is required:
Applied Computer Science (MACS)
Applied Computer Science (MACS-D)

Course materials

Internet resources will be presented at the beginning of the course.
