Intended learning outcomes

Having passed the course, the student should be able to:

  • use academic calendars, course syllabi, intended learning outcomes and grading criteria to plan their studies on both short and long view
  • plan and carry out assignments in stipulated time
  • make well justified specialisation and course choices
  • review critically and reflect on both the set-up and implementation of the education as the own study achievements
  • reflect on different themes relevant for the education and the professional role, such as study technique and progression in subject knowledge and general skills
  • identify their need for additional knowledge and continuously develop their competence
  • analyse and take position to social consequences of computer science applications
  • account for some important events in the history of the computer and computer science
  • formulate a relevant issue to a historical material
  • carry out a limited history of computer science study and present it orally and in writing

in order to

  • obtain an overall picture of the education and thereby better understanding of the importance of each individual course
  • make informed choices both during the education and thereafter
  • influence the development of the program.

Course main content
