    First cycle
    G1N: has only upper-secondary level entry requirements
    G1F: has less than 60 credits in first-cycle course/s as entry requirements
    G1E: contains specially designed degree project for Higher Education Diploma
    G2F: has at least 60 credits in first-cycle course/s as entry requirements
    G2E: has at least 60 credits in first-cycle course/s as entry requirements, contains degree project for Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science
    GXX: in-depth level of the course cannot be classified.

    Second cycle
    A1N: has only first-cycle course/s as entry requirements
    A1F: has second-cycle course/s as entry requirements

Learning outcomes

To pass, the student should be able to

  • in a project group, plan and within given time frames carry out a project in the computational science area;
  • argue for and evaluate solution methods;
  • evaluate results and relate them to the project's subject field;
  • communicate with expertise from the project's subject field;
  • present and summarise the project work orally in English or Swedish in a seminar;
  • present and summarise the project work in the form of a scientific report and in a popular style as a poster and a web presentation.

Content

The course is based on a project, where students in small groups analyse a given problem, and solve the problem, entailing planning, program development and presentation. The work entails interpretation of the problem, mathematical modelling, numerical methods, implementation, and presentation. The project tasks are taken from industry or university and cover many application areas. Instruction is also given in project management as well as oral and written presentation of scientific results, e.g. in seminars, posters, and on the web, including popular scientific presentation.

Instruction

Project work in groups (2-4 students). Seminars and training in presentation skills and project management.

Assessment

Written report, oral presentation in seminars, poster, web presentation. Opponent on another presentation.
