The course consists of two parts.
The larger part (approximately 4 points) treats
programming as a method for problem solving.
Formulation of algorithms, choice of data types
and construction of programs in the chosen
programming language are central issues. In the
course, the programming language Java is used for
implementation of algorithms at which point object oriented programming is introduced. Documentation and
programming testing will be discussed, and an
orientation about programming style and program
quality will be given. Programming will
be discussed from scientific, technical and social
perspectives, as well as the role of programming
in complex systems.
An orientation in the software engineering process is also included.
Lectures, lessons and computer labs.
The examination consists mainly of a number of
computer labs and assignments to be solved
individually and/or in group, with written and/or
oral presentation. Written examination can occur
as a complement.
The reading list is missing. For further information, please contact the responsible department.
