Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The project must treat a problem within the area of scientific computing. A detailed specification and time plan for the project must be made. A literature search in the area must be carried out, and relevant literature must be studied as a preparation before the project. The project work is presented in a written report and in an oral presentation.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the students should be able to:

  • independent plan, carry out, report (orally and in writing), a project in the area of scientific computing, and justify conclusions,
  • collect and systematise requirements and expectations on the deliverables of the project and assess the reasonableness of these in relation to available time and resources,
  • choose a course of action and prepare, follow and adapt a plan for the project,
  • write reports in Swedish or English complying to established standards regarding design, language, style and content,
  • orally report project results with requirements on preparation, content, style and time used,

in order to

  • be well prepared for a degree project in the area of scientific computing.
