Pre-Specialisation in Computer Science


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.

The project module must be implemented in one of the subject areas: database technology, distributed systems, human-computer interaction, semantics & verification, machine intelligence, programming technology, or system development. The project module must be completed in conjunction with the corresponding specialization course.

Learning objectives


After completing the project module, the student should be able to:

  •      document in-depth knowledge and overview of a current research problem in one of the disciplines:
    •          database technology
    •          distributed systems
    •          human-computer interaction
    •          semantics & verification
    •          machine intelligence
    •          programming technology
    •          system development


  • reason about and with the concepts and techniques concerned
  • apply and create theory courses in the subject area in connection with the formulation and analysis of a problem in the subject area research
  • communicate a current computer science problem and the related conceptual apparatus within the framework of the subject area


  • be able to use the concepts and reasonings in the subject area to formulate and analyze a problem within a current research problem in the subject area
