TDDE25 Perspectives in Computer and Software Technology
The main goal of this course is to provide the students with a broad overview and survey of computer science and computer engineering. The course is intended to provide a foundation for understanding both the relevance and interrelationships of fundamental topics and future courses the students will be exposed to in these fields. At the end of the course, the participants will be able to
- understand both the breadth, depth and inter-relationships between topics in computer science and computer engineering;
- have a practical understanding of "computational thinking" as a way to model, solve problems and write software programs;
- demonstrate this practically by participating in a software programming project related to one or more of the topics presented during the seminars.
