The module Pearls of Computer Science is the first module of the first year of Technical Computer Science. The student receives an introduction to eight ‘pearls’ of computer science covering the breadth of the discipline. The pearls are computer architecture, algorithms, designing database systems, functional programming, cryptography, computer networks and operating systems, and artificial intelligence. They are followed by a pearl on designing requirements for a project, then by the project itself. The content of these eight pearls is covered in more depth in the remainder of the TCS programme; either in the mandatory core (consisting of modules 1-7) or in the elective space.|
Pearls of Computer Science consists of the following two study units,
both of which are required to complete the module:
||Pearls of Computer Science Core
||Intro. to Math. + Calculus 1A for CS
- Pearls of Computer Science Core: 11 credits, consisting of the eight pearls, the project and academic skills on the topic of intercultural communication.
- Intro to Math and Calculus 1A: 4 credits, consisting of mathematical topics required in later modules a.o: logic, proofs, combinatorics, functions, differentiation, vectors, partial derivatives
Requirement for minor students: VWO level Math B or equivalent.
If the math study unit is already part of your program, you need to take a replacement course. Contact your program coordinator for more information.
If you want to take this module but you are not a TCS-student or a minor student (minor registration) you need to contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
