Course content

The course will provide experience in the design and implementation of computer programs that solve reasonably complex problems but require limited understanding of advanced theories and concepts in computer science. The focus will be on bottom-up program development, and the use of modularity and abstraction for building large computational systems. Students will learn to use relevant tools for program development, and they will gain useful experience for further study in computer science.

Learning outcome

Basic knowledge in programming combined with planning and implementation of programming projects with some level of complexity. Basic skills in how to work structured and modularized towards a fully-functioning computer system. General competence in project work and independent development and programming.

Learning methods and activities

Students will primarily carry out programming tasks both in and outside the lab. The course instructors and teaching assistants will spend many hours each week in the lab with the students. In some instances, traditional lectures will be given, but for most projects, the majority of instruction (both theoretical and practical) will occur in the lab. Students will work on individual assignments and have the option to work in small groups for some of the assignments. The course is organized as a combination of individual assignments, project works in teams and lectures. Presentations, reports and developed software is the basis for the assessment.

Further on evaluation

Retake of the course will require new participation/deliverables in all activities.

Specific conditions

Admission to a programme of study is required:
Computer Science (MTDT)

Required previous knowledge

The course is only available for students following the masterprogramme in Computer Science (5-årig datateknologi MTDT.

Course materials

A standard textbook on programming and computational problem solving, along with diverse materials distributed prior to and during the course.
