DA152X Degree Project in Computer Science and Industrial Management, first level 15.0 credits

The students perform an independent study, where they are responsible for formulating a question under study, which can be addressed with methods from computer science. They make their own choice of method and are responsible for the progress of the project. Results are reported both in writing and at an oral presentation.

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The students carry out an independent project for which they should formulate an issue that can be studied with methods from the computer science and a related issue that is studied with methods from industrial engineering. They should independently choose method and carry out the study.
The results are reported both in a written report and at an oral presentation. The students should also review and discuss other students' work orally and in writing.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the degree project course, the student should be able to:

  • apply skills and knowledge in computer science on a given problem
  • independently identify, formulate and analyse larger problems in computer science
  • independently identify, formulate and analyse aspects in industrial engineering related to studied computational problems.
  • identify one's own information needs and independently acquire the knowledge and skills that are needed to solve the problem
  • justify his or her choice of method based on the question of issue and expected results
  • reflect on, evaluate and critically discuss one's own and others' results
  • document and present the work orally and in writing, with requirements on structure, contents, presentation, formal contents, style and writing
  • plan the work considering requirements of time and other resources.

Literature and preparations

Specific prerequisites

In addition to the KTH general requirements for 120 completed credits from the programme syllabus of the programme for year 1-3, courses in fields corresponding to the following courses should be completed:

  • Programming and computer science fundamentals, equivalent to DD1320 Applied computer science
  • Planning and implementation of project work, equivalent to ME1306 Industrial project management for I
  • Fundamentals in Industrial Engineering and Management, corresponding to ME1314 Introduction to Industrial Engineering and Management
  • Sustainable development and social aspects, equivalent to ME1314 Introduction to Industrial Engineering and Management
  • Planning, implementation and evaluation of computer science studies in user interaction, equivalent to DH1620 Human-Computer Interaction, introductory course

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.

Examination

  • PRO1 - Project, 15.0 credits, grading scale: P, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
