From Models to Reality


Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module adds to knowledge obtained at CSIT7 and the mandatory course modules on CSIT8

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The student should gain further insight into how using computer science models can help identifying and solving a problem with computer science research and application.

A graduate in computer science should be able to apply theory and model building to identify and to contribute to solutions of a computer science problem and in this context to reflect on the theories and building of models.

Learning objectives


  • explain the concepts, findings and theories in an advanced area of ​​computer science


  • apply knowledge from a theory in computer science to select and argue for a model within an advanced computer science field
  • from such modeling provide a model of a computer science problem and apply this model to understand the problem


  • identify a problem in research or application of computer science
  • contribute to solving the problem using their own modeling based on theories
  • analyze and evaluate the resulting contribution to the solution
  • analyze and evaluate application of relevant models to solve the problem

Type of instruction

  • an analysis and description of a computer science problem
  • establishment of an advanced computer science model that contributes to solving the problem

The project may include complete or partial implementation of a solution in the form of running software.

Extent and expected workload

It is expected that the student uses 30 hours per ECTS, which for this activity means 450 hours
