LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
The subject involves two weekly one -hour lectures and one tutorial class. The lectures are a mix of direct delivery and interactive student problem solving. Although written assignments are submitted by students individually, in-plenum discussion of the problems is encouraged.
INDICATIVE KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
Students are provided with lecture slides, and links on the LMS to the in-house animated software Algorithms in Action. The slides are integrated with a well-established textbook.
CAREERS / INDUSTRY LINKS
With Big Data at the forefront of modern computing solutions, industry is ever-more focused on efficient computational analysis methods. Software engineers, developers and data analysts will find not only the analysis techniques, but also the fundamental algorithmic design concepts, highly applicable to the handling of significant datasets. Building on an initial connection in a similar undergraduate offering, there is scope for industry liaison with this subject.
