Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

Both course content and assessment are designed individually for each student.

Intended learning outcomes *

On completion of the course, the student should be able to solve a design or investigative task in theoretical computer science with limited supervision, and to report the result of such a task. It implies to be able to:

  • independently plan, carry out and report a design or investigative task in theoretical computer science,
  • acquire and evaluate information applicable for carrying out the task,
  • choose a course of approach and define, follow and follow up a plan for carrying out the task in a given resource budget,
  • write readable reports in English or Swedish that satisfy established norms as to structure, language and contents,
  • orally report a work with certain requirements of preparation, structure, style and time,
  • show increased knowledge and skills in theoretical computer science

in order to

  • apply and deepen his or her knowledge in theoretical computer science in a larger individual project work.

Course Disposition

The student should contact the person responsible for current specialization or other teacher and thereafter contact the course coordinator. The course can only be offered if the department has enough resources and skills in the current field. No instruction is given in this course.
