Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The Bachelor's essay should treat an interesting problem in computer science. For the assignment to be appropriate as Bachelor's essay, there need to be interesting issues from the subject area to investigate.

Intended learning outcomes

The student should after completed independent degree project in computer science be able to

  • apply skills and knowledge in computer science on a given problem
  • independently analyse and discuss relevant aspects on and solutions of a larger problem within computer science,
  • apply standard methods of practice in industry, administration and academic environments regarding planning, conducting, reporting and evaluating independent design and investigation projects
  • reflect over, evaluate and critically discuss own and others'scientific results,
  • document and present the work orally and in writing, with requirements of structure, contents, presentation, formal contents, style and writing
  • identify own information needs and independently acquire the knowledge and skills that are needed to solve the problem
  • independently plan and carry out a design or study in computer science
  • independently collect in and organise requirements and expectations on project deliverables
  • evaluate these requirements and expectations considering time and other resources.

Course disposition

The emphasis of the work should lie on investigation and analysis.

In the work is included making a specification and time plan for the assignment and searching and reading literature that is relevant to the Bachelor's essay. The extent should be such that it appears that the student has worked half-time during a semester.

The work is presented in writing in a report and is presented orally. Compulsory supervision meetings can occur.
