This course teaches the foundation of constructing user interfaces for computer systems. This problem is likely harder than you might think: computer program very often perform complex tasks, yet users demand and need simple interfaces. Producing such interfaces requires an understanding of both the user—e.g., what are they trying to accomplish? what do they know already?—and the computer system—e.g., how fast can we provide responses?

This course is a practice-based course where the students will learn how to manage sustainability.

The world is facing severe economic and ecological challenges in relation to climate change, rising population and not least a growing middle class. The International Panel for Climate Change, IPCC, has given us 12 years to act and reduce CO2 emissions. In a Danish context this means that we should reduce our average per capital CO2 emission from 17 tons to 2-3 tons. This challenges politics, innovation, technology development and not least social behaviour. Denmark has made a national goal to be CO2 neutral in 2050 (with no plan how to do it yet), and the City of Copenhagen has made a climate plan aiming to be CO2 neutral in 2025.

In this course the students will be introduced to politics and technological development around sustainable transitions. The course will be planned around a number of specific real-life cases within e.g. smart city development, CO2 accounting, smart electricity, and waste management. The case owners will pose concrete challenges for the students to work on. The students will work in groups proposing conceptual solutions and discussing the chosen cases. The case owners will help the students get access to relevant data and stakeholders, just as they will be giving the students feedback during the process. The cases include challenges around managing sustainable development. The conceptual solutions may include strategy development, conceptual design solutions, organising of partnerships, and guidelines for politics and citizens involvement. Besides working practically on the challenges, the students will have to discuss the case and their own solutions through literature from innovation studies, design theory, and social science and technology studies.

After the course the students will have hands-on experience and a basic understanding of work practices around sustainable development in the real world. They will be better qualified to  contribute to concrete solutions for city planning departments, environmental companies, and other relevant actors within sustainable development.

Furthermore, the cases at the course may also open possible access to further BA thesis work.

Discrete Mathematics covers different topics in mathematics, which support many disciplines in software development. The goal of this course is to give the students the ability to apply formal reasoning. The first part of the course is dedicated to learning how to construct logical proofs, proofs on set theory and proofs by induction, while the second half of the course builds upon the first part to cover number-theoretical concepts, graphs, combinatorics, discrete probabilities, and models of computation. The student will obtain the fundamental skill of computational thinking and will be better equipped to tackle technical subjects throughout the curriculum. The course is an introduction to discrete mathematics as a foundation to work within the fields of computer science, information technologies, and software development. The course develops the necessary terminology and conceptual tools needed for later courses.

This includes:

  • formal reasoning, proofs, logic, set theory, sequences and sums

This course is a practice-based course where the students will learn how to manage sustainability.

The world is facing severe economic and ecological challenges in relation to climate change, rising population and not least a growing middle class. The International Panel for Climate Change, IPCC, has given us 12 years to act and reduce CO2 emissions. In a Danish context this means that we should reduce our average per capital CO2 emission from 17 tons to 2-3 tons. This challenges politics, innovation, technology development and not least social behaviour. Denmark has made a national goal to be CO2 neutral in 2050 (with no plan how to do it yet), and the City of Copenhagen has made a climate plan aiming to be CO2 neutral in 2025.

In this course the students will be introduced to politics and technological development around sustainable transitions. The course will be planned around a number of specific real-life cases within e.g. smart city development, CO2 accounting, smart electricity, and waste management. The case owners will pose concrete challenges for the students to work on. The students will work in groups proposing conceptual solutions and discussing the chosen cases. The case owners will help the students get access to relevant data and stakeholders, just as they will be giving the students feedback during the process. The cases include challenges around managing sustainable development. The conceptual solutions may include strategy development, conceptual design solutions, organising of partnerships, and guidelines for politics and citizens involvement. Besides working practically on the challenges, the students will have to discuss the case and their own solutions through literature from innovation studies, design theory, and social science and technology studies.

After the course the students will have hands-on experience and a basic understanding of work practices around sustainable development in the real world. They will be better qualified to  contribute to concrete solutions for city planning departments, environmental companies, and other relevant actors within sustainable development.

Furthermore, the cases at the course may also open possible access to further BA thesis work.
