Course (MSc): Software Skills Lab

Page content

This 5 ECTS course is a joint teaching unit of the three BeNeFri universities which ensures that students obtain a basic level of programming skills when starting their Master’s studies. Therefore, the course comprises three main themes:

(i) Data structures and representation,
(ii) Algorithms and complexity, and
(iii) Data analysis.

Each theme is taught in a different university. Each session in a theme revolves around a particular problem and builds on top of the previous sessions. Students should complete the exercises of the previous session before the new one starts.
