3. Course contents *

For Bachelors in Computer Science the dissertation consists of participating in a project with four or five students. The purpose of the project is to provide a software solution to a specific scientific problem. The specifics of the problem is different each year, but the approach to the project, the activities and the required outcomes are always the same. It includes analysing of the problem, proposing solutions, discussing trade-offs, design and implement the solution in software using current-day programming and software engineering practices, drawing on your knowledge af all computer science subject areas.

The lectures provide an introduction to the specific problem and the structure of the project, its milestones, the required artifacts and so on. The course notes provide the necessary details.
