PDCS Programming Project


Course Objective

Let the student get hands-on experience with developing systems-level
software in the context of ongoing research projects

Course Content

PDCS programming projects are related to existing research programs in
computer systems. There is no set course description as each project is
negotiated individually with the permanent staff member supervising and
grading it.The assignment aims to offer students a challenging project
that is research-oriented by nature. Students are supposed to talk to
staff members individually to see whether they have a project that
matches the student's interests.

Next to the computer program, a written report must be produced in which
the idea behind the program is described, as well as the novelty and how
it fits in the context of the overall research project. The student
also describe lessons learned, and reflect how the project builds on
knowledge acquired in earlier Bachelor and especially Master courses.

The final mark is based on the quality of the programming work (50%),
the written report (30%), and the academic excellence shown and effort
invested by the student during the project (20%).
