Course overview

Following successful completion of this course, a student should be able to:-

  • Apply computational thinking principles to a project brief, utilising decomposition, abstraction and generalisation techniques to then compose a workable design from a set of identified tools and packages;
  • Implement and evaluate a small (but non-trivial) solution to an identified problem;
  • Present and discuss the strengths and weakness of a given solution in a small group setting;
  • Further develop the transferable nature of problem-solving skills and strategies through the application of computation thinking principles to real-world and open-ended problems.

Who is this course for

  • This course is for first year non-computer science students at Lancaster University.
  • The course is free for all selected undergraduate students at Lancaster University.
  • This new course curriculum is for other major students with no prior knowledge of computing within Lancaster University.

What will I learn

Following successful completion of this course, a student should have learnt:-

  • Problem solving skills to handle common and real-world problems;
  • The ability to identify discipline-specific problems (e.g. from the student’s major discipline) and be able to apply the core computational thinking skills to such problems;
  • Practical project planning, management and presentation skills;
  • How to present and discuss the strengths and weakness of a given solution in a small group presentation setting.
