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.

Intended learning outcomes

The course shall give the student deeper understanding of the
programming and program development and an overview of how computers and computer systems works, both hardware and software parts, in technical problem areas. Some understanding for some tools used within programming implementation. Some understanding of how it is to work in a small programming project and an overview of some problems in a project.

Course content

  • Using the computer system and computer science - Introduction to the window system which are used, UNIX, the editor Emacs. Introduktion in handling workstations and lineprinters.
  • Programming - Introduction to programming and discussions about different programming languages. Handling of system software like compilers and linkers.
  • Specific in Ada: the language elements, types, deklarations, expressions, statements, subprograms, I/O, how to structure programs. Packages. Data structures like arrays, records, files, pointers. A small programming project.
  • Introduction to the MATLAB tool and a small problem solving assignement.

Teaching and working methods

In the first period - The lectures presents the programming language Ada. The laboratory work consists of exercises in using IDA:s computer system. The exercises in programming are the big part of the laboratory work. The lessons in the course consists of exersices and are introductional to the laboratory work.
In the second period -Lectures, lessons and laboratory work are used for a small programming project. The course needs a large amount of the students home time.
The course runs over the entire spring semester
