The module adds to knowledge obtained during the project and course modules from previous semesters

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

PURPOSE
That the student can formulate, analyze and contribute to solving a current research problem in computer science independently, systematically and critically through the application of scientific theory and method

REASON
University programs are research-based programs; all students must obtain in-depth knowledge of the current research problem and methods in the master's program, so that this insight can be used to solve problems in research

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • document in-depth knowledge and overview of a current problem in computer science research and its possible solutions

Skills

  • be able to reason about and with the concepts and techniques concerned
  • be able to apply and create theory courses in the subject area in connection with the formulation and analysis and solution of a problem in computer science research
  • be able to convey a current computer science problem, a contribution to its solution and the related conceptual apparatus within the framework of the research area

Competences

  • be able to use the concepts and reasoning in the subject area to formulate, analyze and contribute to solving a problem within a current problem in computer science research
