- Responsible department: Department of Information Technology
On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- in a project group, plan and within given time frames carry out a project in the scientific computing 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.
The course is based on a project, where students in small groups analyse and solve a given problem, which entails planning, programming 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 oral and written presentation of scientific results, e.g. in seminars, posters, and on the web, including popular scientific presentation. Project management.
Projectwork normally in groups (2-3 students). Seminars and presentation skills training, and lectures on project management.
Written report, oral presentation in seminars, poster, web presentation. Opponent on another presentation.
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
