1st Semester

Elective courses 2 x 7,5 credits
Two from the following four courses

Enterprise Computing and ERP Systems 7,5 credits

The course discusses how enterprise information systems support organizations in value chains and supply chains. The course introduces a number of modern enterprise modelling techniques based on linguistic instruments and economic ontologies. It is shown how these techniques support requirements elicitation for enterprise information systems design.

Data mining in Computer and System Sciences 7,5 credits

As data is becoming more and more readily available, the need to analyse and make use of these large amounts of data is rapidly growing. Data mining deals with techniques that can find interesting and useful patterns in large volumes of data. This course covers basic concepts, techniques and algorithms in data mining combined with hands-on experimentation.

Advanced Requirements Engineering of IT-systems 7,5 credits

Requirements engineering (RE) plays a fundamental role within the systems development process. The goal of this course is to bring in the concepts, methods, techniques and practices needed in the eliciting, analysing, documenting, validating and managing requirements for agile information systems. It explains how RE fits a broader systems development process, and provides an understanding of the main challenges in requirements engineering nowadays.

Introduction to testing of IT systems 7,5 credits (taught in Swedish)/Introduktion till testning av IT-system 7,5 hp

Kursen diskuterar hela testcykeln, från enhetstest till systemtest, men fokus ligger på verktyg och testdesigntekniker för programmerare. Det finns därför ett stort praktiskt inslag i kursen där man ska implementera och på ett strukturerat sätt testa kod.

 

Mandatory course 1 x 7,5 credits

Scientific Communication & Research Methodology 7,5 credits

Computing as a discipline combines three academic traditions: the theoretical tradition, the scientific (experimental) tradition, and the engineering tradition.  Due to that combination, there is no clear methodological tradition in computer science.  This course introduces computer science students to the principles of scientific research: how to design, implement, and report a research study. The main focus of this course is in research design and reporting: students will learn how to align problem statement, aims, objectives, research questions, data collection and analysis, and reporting into a coherent and logically flowing whole.

 

Elective course 1 x 7,5 credits
One from the following two courses

Introduction to Information Security 7,5 credits

The course is primarily an introductory course that prepares students for advanced studies in the field of information security and digital security. The course therefore provides a general conceptual framework for the subject area and provide familiarity with the terminology that is relevant to the more specialised security and forensics courses offered by the department.

Management of Global IT Resources 7,5 credits

The trend towards globalisation has determined the multinational companies to increase their attention on the role of information technologies in support of their global operations. In this perspective, the course is addressing the important issues and challenges in managing IT resources in multinational companies.
