Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Purpose:  
The student should gain knowledge about issues and fundamental techniques for developing applications to solve realistic tasks, and gain experience in developing large systems, labour and quality control including testing.

Reason:
The project module focuses on achieving skills with specific and predefined methods, languages ​​and tools. The project module should ensure that students gain a common foundation on program development that can be utilized in the following semesters

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • analyse and model the requirements of the object oriented paradigm
  • structure an application in a multi-layer architecture using current program designs, realize and test the application in an object-oriented paradigm
  • understand and use concepts and features in the paradigm and on this basis construct an application of high internal and external quality

Skills

  • implement systematic testing of the application and demonstrate that the application corresponds to the intentions and needs of users
  • implement systematic evaluation of the user interface
  • argue for the choices made in all the development process activities, including explaining requirements, architecture and how users are linked

Competences

  • develop a running application that solves the user’s problem
  • describe and reflect on the methods used in the development project

Type of instruction

Project work, including:

  • formulation, analysis and contribution to the resolution of a current research problem within the theme of the project module
  • As an integrated part of the project work, the student must follow the Problem based learning and project management workshop (1 ECTS). Approved participation is required to register for the project exam, See enclosure 1.

Extent and expected workload
