DD100N Programming Techniques, Web Course 6.0 credits
A basic course in programming technique.
Educational levelFirst cycle
Academic level (A-D)A
Grade scaleA, B, C, D, E, FX, F
At present this course is not scheduled to be offered.
The goal of the course is to give the students
- computer practice, ability to write well structured programs, and knowledge of fundamental computer concepts,
- practice in solving construction problems and in working in small groups as well as individuallyso that they will
- consider computers and programming to be natural tools in the engineering work
- see the similarities between program construction and other types of construction work,
- be able to do some programming.
Course main content
Fundamental computer concepts.
Programming in a modern programming language (Python). Data structures. Simple graphics. Problem solving by dividing the problem into sub-problems. Program structuring. Several small programming exercises and one larger, individual programming exercise with emphasis on structuring and specification of the modules being used.
This course is read entirely in your own speed over the net. The exception is the final oral presentation that takes place at KTH, Vallhallavägen, Stockholm.
The computer excercises are done over the net and also presented at the final oral presentation.
For single course students:
- Completed upper secondary education including documented proficiency in English, Swedish and
- Mathematics corresponding to grade D.
High school mathematics (scientific program). Some computer experience (the concepts of operating system and file and experience from one computer application, e.g. word processing) e. g. the course DD101N Preparation Course in Programming and Computer Science.
All material is available on the course homepage.
Computer with a webbreader and internetaccess. A Python interpreter can be downloaded at the start of the course.
