Scientific Communication and Research Methodology

Computing as a discipline combines three academic traditions: the theoretical tradition, the scientific (experimental) tradition and the engineering tradition.

Due to that combination, there is no clear methodological tradition in computer science. This course introduces how to design, implement and report a research study. The main focus of this course is research design and reporting. Students will learn how to align problem statement, aims, objectives, research questions, data collection analysis and reporting into a coherent and logically flowing whole.
