Welcome to the Project Course!

This course helps you towards realizing your true potential as a developer. To achieve this, you and your team will conceive, design, and implement a product in the area of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The course runs in three phases.

The first phase of the course is preparation. You read up on the project methodology we use (Scrum), and the version management tool we use (Git). Also during the preparation phase, teams are formed, and the teams suggest and discuss product-ideas with the teachers. The teachers approves one of the team's product ideas.

The second phase is project work. Your team will design and implement the product in four so-called sprints. Each sprint is approximately one week long. During the sprints, everyone works full office-hours: from 8:00 to 17:00, with a lunch hour from 12:00 to 13:00. At the end of each sprint, your team reflects on which project-methods worked well, and which didn't, in order to improve the next sprint.

The third phase is for final reflection. The product (or prototype) that your team developed is now ready. All products are shown to the public at a project expo. You also submit a written individual reflection, which documents the experience you gained in the course.

Completed courses in all of the following fields:

  • Programming equivalent to ID1018
  • Algorithms and Data Structures equivalent to the test part ARBA (course work) in ID1020 
  • Computer Hardware Engineering equivalent to IS1200 

Active participation in a course offering where the final examination is not yet reported in LADOK is considered equivalent to completion of the course.

Registering for a course is counted as active participation.

The term 'final examination' encompasses both the regular examination and the first re-examination.
