Reliable Innovative Systems


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

This is an English translation of the module.
In case of discrepancy between the translation and the Danish version, the Danish version of the module is valid.

That students work on creating advanced computer science models of a problem themselves and use these models to develop innovative solutions balanced in relation to the reliability of the solution.

Learning objectives


  • be able to explain concepts, results and theory within an advanced field of computer science
  • have knowledge of empirical and mathematical-based methods for securing and assessing the reliability of a system


  • apply knowledge from a theory within computer science to select and argue for a model developped within an advanced computer science field
  • from such a model development be able to form a computer science problem and use that model to understand the problem
  • argue for appropriate choice of method (empirical or mathematical-based) to assess the reliability of the solution developed for the problem


  • identify a problem within a research or application field of computer science
  • contribute to solving the problem using own model formation based on computer science theories
  • analyze and evaluate the contribution made to a solution
  • analyze and evaluate applications of relevant computer science models to solve this problem
  • assess the reliability of the developed solution from either an empirical, statistical or mathematically oriented method

Type of instruction

The project work is supported by digital resources on empirical / qualitative and mathematical methods for assessing the reliability of a solution.

Extent and expected workload

The student is expected to spend 27.5 hours per ECTS, which for this activity means 412.5 hours.


Prerequisite for enrollment for the exam

  • An approved PBL competency profile is a prerequisite for participation in the project exam
