120 credits including Mathematics 30 credits. In addition 30 credits at advanced level, where 20 credits must be courses in computational science.
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.
The students form groups of two or three and work on a project. This includes analysis and studies of the problem, mathematical modelling, numerical methods, computer implementation and interpretation and presentation of the results. The projects are taken from industry or university.
Lectures on oral and written presentation of scientific results on seminars, posters and on the web are given in parallel with the project.
Project work in groups (2-3 students). Seminars, presentation skills training.
Written report, oral presentation in seminars, poster, web presentation.
