Instructors and contact information


The goal of this course is to practice solving a large algorithmic problem and to practice implementing and experimentally investigating solutions to algorithmic problems. A second goal is to practice various professional skills, such as working effectively in a team, planning, technical writing and presenting. To this end students work in teams on an algorithmically-oriented assignment, follow a training on presentation skills, and present their work in presentations and written reports.

Note: this course covers two time slots = 16 hours per week. Your meeting room is reserved for you for half of those hours, namely Wed 13:45-17:30 and Fri 8:45-12:30. During the other hours, you can work on your assigned tasks at home or you can meet with your team somewhere else, but you will have to find a suitable place to meet yourself then.


In addition to the deadlines listed in the schedule, there are the following deadlines every week:

  • at the end of every week (except the first), each team should send their (updated) project planning to the tutor;
  • at the end of every week (except the first), every team member should send their time sheet to the tutor.

Students are required to take part in all activities of this course, so reserve these dates and times in your schedules. Students who are absent without notice will be removed from the course. The same applies to students who are absent by choice (for example, to go on vacation when tickets are cheapest). Peer assessments and reflections on professional skills are mandatory: they do not “count” towards your grade, but without them, you cannot pass the course.
