Development of Software


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


The student must through the project work demonstrate: 

  • knowledge about foundational programming techniques in working with computational thinking and problem-solving through developing software 

  • experience with programming, testing, and evaluation of software that solves a well-defined problem 


  • Programming a software system given requirements and complete the development to a running software system that can be demonstrated 

  • Argue for choices in the programming including explain in which ways and to what extent the program solves the problem and relate to computational thinking 

  • Describe, plan and reflect on the project work 



  • Analyse own learning process and the project group’s organization in the group work in order to identify strengths and weaknesses 

  • Describe and explain the project’s results and work processes in a clear, coherent and precise manner by writing, modelling and speaking
