  • Purpose and learning objectives

    This elective aims to qualify students to develop applications. We will use Visual Studio, C# as well as other relevant tools needed or helpful in an app development context.

    C# provides you with a powerful, patterns-based way to build dynamic apps that enables a clean separation of concerns and gives you full control agile development.


    The goal is that the student gains knowledge of:
    ● Visual Studio, C#
    ● Programming constructs and threading
    ● LINQ database or just objects
    ● Unit testing and software builds
    ● Frameworks for advanced software development
    ● .NET frameworks, Unity programming


    The goal is that the student is able to use the tools listed above to develop robust applications.


    The goal is that the students are able to use the mentioned tools and analyze and choose a suitable tool for a given task.

  • Type of instruction
    The teaching method is a mix of lectures, exercises and project work. Each lecture will consist of a part with new theory and a part in which the teacher applies the new theory in a practical solution by doing ”live” coding on a sample project. After that, the students will work with an exercise or they will apply the new theory directly to their exam project while
    the teacher helps the students in a workshop style setting.

    The teacher will use the same sample project throughout the course and apply the new theory to the project during the lectures.

    The project work period is approx. 2 weeks during which the exam project is in focus.
  • Subject/module requirement for participation

    Academic requirement for participation
    Good skills in object oriented programming in eg. Java or other is preferred.

    Equipment needed to participate
    Since Visual Studio is used, the student must have a laptop with Windows (which could also be a Macbook with Parallels, bootcamp or similar).

  • Exam

    The learning outcomes of the exam are identical with the learning outcomes of the subject(s)/modul(es)

    Prerequisites for access to the examination
    There is one mandatory activity per 5 ECTS. A 10-ECTS module thus contains two mandatory
    activities, while a 5-ECTS module contains one mandatory activity. This is described in the relevant
    semester/class room on Fronter. Documentation of mandatory activities must be submitted
    via Fronter.
    Exam in one or more subjects
    Subject/module is tested standalone
    This elective will be completed by a project, a report and an exam.

    The project and the report are typically developed by a group of 2-3 students.

    The exam is the delivered project and report and an oral, graded exam. Re-exams will take place according to the general schedule in the overview calendar. Students will use their project to show examples of how they have applied the knowledge of the subject.

    The students must produce a web application based on the subjects from the course based on good coding practices. It is allowed to go into depth with some of the subjects and leave other subjects out of the exam project but the oral exam can cover any subject in the curriculum.
    Type of exam
    Oral examination
    Individual exam or group exam
    Individual or group, 2-3 max participants
    Exam languages
    The student must give a 10-minute presentation, followed by a 20-minute examination of the student, including grading.
    Type of evaluation
    7-point grading scale
    Internal censure
    Exam criteria
    One aggregate grade is awarded based on an overall assessment of the presentation and the
    following examination.
  • Preliminary literature list
    This is a preliminary literature list. A final literature list will be provided in connection with study start.
    A series of relevant links.
