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 purpose of the project module is to introduce the student to moving from design requirements in a given case to a functional interactive system, where the focus is on using opportunities in a specific programming environment. The goal is to develop a fully functional interactive prototype, which must be tested in relation to the requirements in a design proposal. The project module is based on one or more specific cases.

Learning objectives


  • must be able to demonstrate knowledge of the design and construction of an interactive system, including the use of possibilities in a specific programming environment for the realization of a number of set design requirements


  • must be able to implement an interactive system including using and understanding concepts, structures and facilities in a programming environment to construct a well-structured system
  • must be able to carry out systematic testing of the system's functionality in relation to the set design requirements
  • must be able to justify the design and construction of the interactive system in relation to the set design requirements


  • must be able to translate design requirements into a functional interactive system, and be able to reflect on possibilities and limitations in programming environments
