The course grade is formed from points, which are earned from weekly excercises, lectures, lecture essays, online visualization assignments, and programming assignments. A minimum number of points have to be earned from each part. In addition to this, students have to pass the exam.

Learning Outcomes

After completing the course, the student knows the commonly used algorithm design techniques. The student can implement basic data structures independently, and knows how to apply related algorithms to them. The student is able to analyze the asymptotic complexity of simple programs and knows how to use library implementations to build more complex data structures.
