Objectives and competences

Students will study additional data structures and algorithms. Independently they will study a new data structure or algorithm and prepare its presentation. They will be able to use the data structures or algorithms addressing the specific problems.

Intended learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding:
The student develops the ability to independently studies a new data structure and algorithm. He is able to prepare a report on algorithmic solution of a certain problem.
The student is able to design effective computer programs and to predict their behavior.
The student develops the ability of integration of theoretical and practical procedures in the development of algorithms
Transferable skills:
The subject is connected with Computing Science 1.

Learning and teaching methods

Lectures, exercises, usage of distance learning techniques, home works, consultations


Students receive one grade from the project.
Grading: 1-5 (fail), 6-10 (pass) (according to the Statute of UL)
