Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Introduction to programming datastructures and algorithms, computer science, at least 45 credits. Basic course in industrial economics..

Intended learning outcomes

The aim of this course is to provide a holistic perspective on models and methods to analyze and evaluate new technology and its alternatives as well as its economical and socio- technical effects. After the course, students should be well equipped to take part in discussions about how to evaluate and analyze the impact and possibilities of new IT ventures.

Course content

This course takes you through theories and techniques to evaluate and analyze IT-ventures and/or innovative IT-based applications from a socio-technical perspective. Based on current trends, we focus on the importance, the impacts and the potential effects of existing technology. The ambitious is to show how evaluations models can be used to analyze the effects of new technology for users, enterprises, organizations and the society as a whole, as well as the incentives needed to realize the latent utility of technology.

A project report is developed during this course. In the report students analyze and evaluate the economic, organizational as well as the technical aspects, effects and consequences of the implementation and use of state of the art IT-ventures.

The participants’ projects, their literature searches, and the exchange of knowledge between the workgroups form a central part of this course. The role of the teachers is to give an overview of the areas involved, to give support and supervision to produce a god project, and to organize the course in a manner that support the students´ learning process.
Course literature:

Teaching and working methods

The course contains lectures and seminars – in the classroom and a project. The seminaries are related to the literature in use and are conducted by participants. Most of the teaching is concentrated into 4-hour modules where we mix lectures, seminaries, and discussions of literature.
A project report is developed during this course. In the project students analyze and evaluate the economic, organizational as well as the technical aspects, effects and consequences of the implementation and use of state of the art IT ventures. The results of the project are presented in a final seminary .The interaction between workgroups during the final seminary form central parts of the course.
