Programmes

In the programme you learn about databases and their structure You also learn to program and to develop and maintain IT systems.

You are given basic insight into information technology and learn to develop and further develop IT systems. At the same time, you will be taught to analyse the business requirements of a business and carry out the solutions.

Instruction takes place as a combination of team instruction, project work - individually and in groups - based on cross-discipline issues and always in an application-oriented manner.

During the course of your studies you will be in close contact with the business community and you will, for example, write papers in cooperation with both the public sector and private businesses. You will also be an intern in a business in which you can try out your competencies in practice.

PROGRAMMING
In general, instruction is given in programming based on syntax, programming method, and program design at a beginner level. You learn to program in the following languages: Java, C++, ASP, SML. 

SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT
System development theory and method from preliminary examination to testing of systems is the focal point of instruction in system development.  Instruction is primarily about iterative methods such as scrum.

BUSINESS
Based on organisation theory, you will learn to analyse the organisational connections that you can use in system development and for implementing new systems in organisations.

TECHNOLOGY
You will learn about the computer at a component level so that you understand the processes that run in the computer that can affect your system development process and programming.

ELECTIVE
Examples of subjects can include programming of mobile units, Web programming, cops and hackers, and usability.

INTERNSHIP
A 10-week internship takes place in a relevant business in which you can try out what you have learned in the course of study. 

FINAL PROJECT
The programme ends with a project in which you specialise within a specific topic.  The project is an extension of your internship, which will typically form the basis for the final project.

Examinations

The Computer Science programme uses several forms of examination, from individual to project exams.

1st YEAR EXAM PROJECT (EXTERNAL)
The purpose of the first year is to give students the skills independently and in collaboration with others primarily to develop single-user systems. The first year ranges from the subject of pre-analysis to administration and operation. This takes place using a systematic progression incorporating technological and business aspects.

PROGRAMMING EXAM - 3rd SEMESTER ORAL (INTERNAL)
No later than a week prior to the examination a list of main subjects in the area of Programming will be published. The main subjects include the most important subjects in the area and form the basis of the Programming part of the examination. At the examination the student draws a subject. The student is expected to be able to present the drawn Programming topic. The presentation must include both a theoretical presentation and a review of practical programming examples.

TECHNOLOGY EXAMINATION - 3rd SEMESTER ORAL (INTERNAL)
The student draws a question in the area of Technology. The main emphasis is on the subject of Computer Networks and Distributed Systems. System development examination – 4th semester Project (internal) For the oral part of the examination, students will be examined in the whole of the subject of System Development. The project is usually carried out in project groups of 3-4 students.

SPECIALIST SUBJECT EXAMINATION 4th SEMESTER
Synopsis + oral (internal) During the examination the student presents his/her individual subject as described in the specialist subject report. The subsequent examination is based on the examinee's presentation and report, but other topics from the subject and any optional modules may also be incorporated. Work experience examination – 5th semester Synopsis + oral (internal) Participants: The student and work experience tutors from the educational establishment. At the examination, the student presents and details his/her individual course as described in the synopsis. The subsequent examination is based on the examinee's presentation.

EXAMINATION IN THE FINAL EXAMINATION PROJECT 5th SEMESTER
Project (external) The subject of the final examination project is formulated by the student in consultation with the Academy and as far as possible in consultation with a company. The Academy approves the wording of the project­. The examination in the final examination project therefore comprises a project and an oral part. The final examination project must document that the level required at the final examination of the course has been attained. The examination project usually takes place in groups of up to 3 students. The examination project is submitted to the Academy in the form of a report and a product, if applicable, in three copies. The product may be e.g. a programme, a system, an analysis or a survey.
