STEFAN GRUNER: Project Website for Computer Science Students at U-Pretoria
My involvement with this department dates back to the year 2001 when I was
chosen to serve as the department's very first External PhD Examiner under
the chairmanship of Roelf van den Heever and Derrick Kourie. I reported on
the PhD Thesis of Marlene Ross, who was the first PhD Candidate after this
department had been formally established by the Universiteit van Pretoria.
Since my actual arrival at the department (July 2006) I have been involved
in the teaching of Design Patterns (COS214) Compiler Construction (COS341)
Component-based Design (CBD780) Operating Systems (COS222) Introduction to
Computer Science (COS151) and Distributed Systems (VRS780). Occasionally I
am also helping out in Software Engineering (COS301). Sometimes, every now
and then I am also offering voluntary Seminars on How to review a Research
Paper (without course-code). I am also supervising 1-year-Projects for the
Hons.-curriculum (COS700) for the M.IT.-curriculum (MIT840) as well as for
the undergraduate curriculum (COS301).
My interests are Software Engineering, Formal Methods, Distributed Systems
as well as Transdisciplinary Studies. For project students, at all levels,
I have some interesting project offers, in several subject fields, namely:
Master's and Doctoral Projects:
- 3rd-Year Projects (COS301): http://www.cs.up.ac.za/courses/COS301
- 4th-Year Projects (COS700): http://www.cs.up.ac.za/courses/COS700
The topics of these types of advanced projects can be defined individually
by the candidates as long as they fit into the framework of my group, SSFM
(Software Science and Formal Methods) http://ssfm.cs.up.ac.za/
VOLUNTARY SEMINARS THIS YEAR, 2012:
Throughout the year I am offering voluntary seminars and special interest
groups (outside the official curriculum) for keen students. For this year
2012 we have:
highly to every student:
If you are interested in participation, then please contact me about date
and time and venue of those seminars. My room is IT-4-40 on the 4th floor.
I have no problems with meeting my students on equal terms, provided that
that the work gets done. Click on my photo, to email me about your plans!
