This module introduces students to the formal concepts of algorithms and data structures and will enable them to understand how the selection of different algorithms and data types affects the performance and efficiency of a program. Particular attention will be paid to the fundamental problems of searching, sorting, and graph traversal.
The research project will provide students with the opportunity of exploring a particular topic in computer science in some considerable depth. The project may involve the development of a software system in which case the student will experience the major phases of the life-cycle of a practical IT-project: Specification, design, implementation, testing, verification and validation. The project will enhance the students' competence in algorithm or system analysis, as well as informal and formal mathematical reasoning. It will give students an intellectual challenge to their abilities to learn new subjects without instruction and to further develop their abilities in literature researching, report writing, verbal presentation, project planning and time management.
This module provides a broad overview of current research. Students will write reports and give talks on general research topics in theoretical computer science.
This intensive course provides a solid introduction to the Java programming language and development process.
