This course includes COMP1110 and extends it with 12 one-hour lecture/tutorial/laboratory sessions. It introduces students to various areas of research in computer science, especially those research areas represented in the School of Computer Science, other than those covered in COMP1130. A number of research groups in the School will be responsible for various parts of the course. Each part will consist of some introductory lectures on the data structures and algorithms most relevant to the research area and an overview lecture on the research problems, techniques, and applications of the area. These topics will include graphs, sets, probability, propositional logic and data modelling.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
Upon completion of this course, in addition to the learning outcomes of COMP1110, the student will have the following outcomes:
- Understand how data models, data structures and algorithms are employed in various research areas in computer science.
- Have an appreciation of current issues in computer science research
- Understand the application of software development practices to contemporary computer science research.
Assignments (40%); Final exam (60%)
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
Thirteen three-hour tutorial/laboratory/lecture sessions.
