DD1311 Programming Techniques with PBL 6.0 credits
Programmeringsteknik med PBL
A basic course in programming techniques teached with problem based learning.
Educational levelFirst cycle
Academic level (A-D)A
Subject areaInformation Technology
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 individually
so 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, and
- 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.
Some computer experience (the concepts of operating system and file and experience from one computer application, e.g. word processing).
Either SF1658 and SF1624 or SF1623 and SF1613. But these courses can be done in parallel with Programming Techniques with PBL.
Course literature will be announced at least 4 weeks before course start at course web page.
