The subject will provide the student with a good foundation for further studies and work within the engineering disciplines. This is done through problem solving using suitable data programming tools (MATLAB) and through project work where the student will be acquainted with the engineering discipline in collaboration with other students. The project will consists of programming robots and will be carried out in groups of maximum 4 students.
Have a basic understanding of programming.
Have a basic understanding of MATLAB as an engineering tool.
Be able to make programs in MATLAB that solve simpler engieering tasks.
Be able to use MATLAB for programming of robots.
Have a foundation for better understanding of subjects such as Mathematics 1 and Physics.
Master problem-solving and be able to apply flowcharts and pseudo code to make and describe algorithms.
Be able to plan, carry out and present an engineering project in cooperation with fellow students.
Can identify security, vulnerability, privacy and data security aspects of products and systems using ICT.
Required prerequisite knowledge
Innlevering i MATLAB, Innlevering i datasikkerhet
1) Compulsory assignment using MATLAB
2) Compulsory assignment in ICT security
Both of these must be approved before the student can access the final exam.
Method of work
MATLAB part: 3 hours lectures and 3 hours exercise per week the first 6 weeks.
ICT security: Individual online course. Open until 3 weeks before exam.
Project part: After the first 6 weeks, the rest of the semester is devoted to the LEGO-robot programming project with up to 2 hours of lectures per week related to the project.
