  • plan and perform tasks within stipulated time,
  • make well motivated specialization and course selections,
  • critically analyze and reflect on the structure and performance of the programme and their own study achievements,
  • follow the main thread of the programme and the progression of both subject knowledge and generic skills, in relation to the programme objectives and the future professional role,
  • identify the need of additional knowledge and continuously develop their competence,
  • analyze and evaluate social and ethical consequences of computer applications,
  • describe some important historic events in computer science,
  • find a relevant question formulation to a historic material,
  • perform a bounded computer science historic study and present it orally and in writing

in order to

  • get an overview of the education and thereby get an improved understanding of the importance of every single course,
  • make informed choices, both during their studies and afterwards,
  • influence the development of the programme.
