Courses are generally planned as full-day seminars on Fridays and mainly concentrated during the first part of the trimester. For a course of 5 ECTS, we plan five full-day seminars. For the first trimester, we offer two courses and for the students who start in September 2022, the courses are planned as follows:
APPLICATION AND NETWORK SECURITY
DATA PROTECTION AND PRIVACY
Project work is usually carried out in groups which allow the students to work across disciplinary fields and job titles. Homework as well as project work can be supervised in a combination of students being present at AAU and via e-learning tools. The study programme is in this way tailored to fit the work and life of IT-professionals.
In the third trimester, you have the chance to specialise through choosing one elective course and an elective the topic for your thesis.
For all projects, you have the possibility to work with problems and challenges which are relevant to your organisation or company. Thus, a close link between the your daily work and your education may be established.
Teaching and learning is built on the principles of Problem Based Learning (PBL), which is the core of all teaching and learning at AAU. With the principles of PBL, you learn through working with real-world problems and by being able to analyse and identify different solutions. Project work is most often carried out in groups. The first trimester project emphasises how principles of PBL and Scientific Methods can be used during the study. Here, you will be introduced to the principles of PBL and how to work with academic methods as part of the project work.
