Contents
The course gives an overwiew of Computer Science and Engineering and introduces some fundamental concepts in this area e.g., the binary numeral system, representation of characters in computers, fundamental logics, formal languages and communication systems. It also gives the students insight of how knowledge from basic courses are used in more advanced courses. This is achieved by examples from compiler constructon techiques, automatic control, data communication, real time systems and robotics, computer graphics and image analysis.

Literature
Course material will be made available by the department. A course book might be used. In that case it will be announced on the course web page at least one month before the course starts.
