Asignaturas en Windesheim

Volvemos con la experiencia Erasmus!

Me han enviado los señores de Windesheim información sobre las asignaturas que puedo hacer allí. Al final os copio las que a mi me parecen interesantes.

Al parecer allí los semestres se dividen en 2 bloques y en cada bloque haces unas 3 o 4 asignaturas, es decir, las haces intensamente y tienes exámenes finales a medio semestre, aunque la mayoría son de entregar trabajos o prácticas puntuables.

Las fechas de cada bloque serian:
Block 3 : 30-01-2006/08-04-2006
Block 4 : 10-04-2006/24-06-2006
Empiezo el día 30 de Enero y no vuelvo hasta Julio!!! :D

Las asignaturas que me gustaría tocar son las siguientes:
Java for mobile phones and PDA
Introduction to Robotics
2D3D Programming with Direct X
Information Strategy
Artificial Intelligence
Introduction to Windesheim University (obligatoria)
Dutch Society

Las cuales suman 31 créditos ECTS, el equivalente a 37 créditos de la FIB.

Por si alguien quiere verlas...

Java for mobile phones and PDA
ects-credits: 4

The Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME) is the Java platform for consumer embedded devices, such as mobile phones, PDA or TV set-up boxes. J2ME consists of a set of standard Java API’s
During this module students learn to design and construct J2ME applications for a PDA and a mobile phone. The J2ME architecture will be discussed and a MIDlet application will be programmed. Aspects that will be dealt with are the limited resource capacity, the limited user interface and the wireless communication possibilities of a mobile phone.
The theory will be covered in six weeks of lectures. In the tutorial, sample applications will be examined and students will make their own applications. In addition, applications will be constructed and assessed.

Prior knowledge/entry requirements: To be able to program in Java.

Teaching methods: group work; lectures
Assessment: assignment

ntroduction to Robotics
ects-credits: 4

The module comprises a theoretical and a practical component. The theory component will include, artificial intelligence, control systems and application programs end construction and characteristics of various types of robots and sensors.
In addition to the theoretical component there is a practical assignment on path planning for robots.

Prior knowledge/entry requirements: Programming knowledge is essential, preferably in Java or C++.

Teaching methods: group work; lectures
Assessment: assessment is based on the submitted assignments and a written examination.

2D3D Programming with Direct X
ects-credits: 7

During the module “2D and 3D Programming with DirectX©”, the student gets acquainted with the functioning of the graphical system in a PC and learns how graphical manipulations are performed, first by means of the GDI of the WIN32 API and afterwards with the DirectX© API. The student will study the basic principles of coordinate systems and matrix transformations in order to be able to work with these graphical libraries. He or she also learns the necessary techniques for working with graphical objects.

Prior knowledge/entry requirements: Programming knowledge is essential, preferably in Java or C++. Also knowledge of WIN32 API and UML is required.

Teaching methods: group work; lectures
Assessment: weekly assignments, based on the theory and a final assignment.

Information Strategy
ects-credits: 4

Every student has already developed a plan of approach for building a new information system or for altering an existing system. But what do you do when you have to build ten systems, or fifty, instead of one? In that case, a detailed plan for each separate system won’t suffice; instead, you will need a coordinated plan and a coherent vision. This vision results from the company’s strategy. Better yet, information strategy that directs the company strategy.

The module starts with two seminars that focus on strategy and company strategy. The literature and case studies provide an overview of the relationship between vision and strategy, information strategy, information planning and the ultimate development into projects.
After these two seminars, the students will formulate information strategy and create a brief information plan. This part of the course will be carried out independently; weekly progress reports in the form of a review will be handed in to the teacher.

Teaching methods: seminars and group work
Assessment: review of information strategy and information plan

Artificial Intelligence
ects-credits: 5

The module comprises a theoretical and a practical component. The theoretical component will be given in lectures covering subjects as knowledge representation, inference, expert systems, search techniques and applications of knowledge technology. The practical component consists of an assignment, which involves the programming of a Fuzzy Logic application in groups of two students. In consultation with the lecturer, students may also undertake their own assignment provided the assignment fits into the framework of this module.
Prior knowledge/entry requirements: Good knowledge of programming.

Teaching methods: group work; lectures
Assessment: written interim examination and the submitted report. A pass mark for the assignment is compulsory.

Introduction to Windesheim University, and Social and Cultural Guidance
ECTS-credits: 2

International students are prepared for their study at Windesheim. Many practical aspects will be explained and Windesheim's philosophy on education, life and internationalisation will be presented. Some aspects of society, culture and student life will also be given attention.

Teaching methods: lectures, presentations, discussions, sightseeing
Assessment: 80% attendance
Blocks: 1 and 2 (autumn semester); 3 and 4 (spring semester)

Dutch Society
ECTS -credits: 6

Students gain an understanding of the historical development and the social changes that have influenced Dutch society. Other topics covered are the spatial contrasts that exist in the Dutch landscape, economic development, the distribution of the population, and the international position of the Netherlands, particularly in relation to its position within the European Union.
