Course development and history
An independent analysis of a problem within computer science.
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.
- apply skills and knowledge acquired as part of the computer science engineering program on a selected problem
- independently indentify, formulate, and analyze substantial problems in computer science
- identify own need of further information and independently acquire the knowledge and skills needed to solve the problem
- motivate the choice of method based on the question asked and expected results
- reflect on, evaluate, and critically examine own and others results
- document and present the work, orally and in writing, with demands on structure, content, presentation, formal content, style, and writing
- plan the work in light of available time and resources.
Students work in groups of two and are assigned a supervisor who has the role of a mentor during the course.
All student grups of each supervisor meet at regular intervals, where the students report on the progress.
The course ends with a joint conference where all student groups present their results.
At least 101 credits from the compulsory courses year 1, year 2 and period 1 from year three must be completed at latest 1/11.

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.
In this course all the regulations of the code of honor at the School of Computer science and Communication apply, see: http://www.kth.se/csc/student/hederskodex/1.17237?l=en_UK.
