Course contents:

IMRT100 and INF100 form the introductory course for studies towards a Master in Technology, Bachelor in Geomatics and Bachelor in Energy and Environmental Physics.

Students will be inspired and motivated by a taste of their studies. Students undertake a project specific to their field of study in groups, aquainting themselves with problems and methods typical for their field of studies.

In addition, students will be be introduced to study techniques, to the institute and NMBU, as well as refreshing their mathematics skills.

Learning outcome:
The students shall obtain knowledge about the role mathematical sciences and technology plays for the department's different subject areas, to the benefit for the student's own further studies. The students shall obtain knowledge about good study practice, rules concerning plagiarizm and report writing. The students shall develop skills regarding project work and writing of reports through, within own subject area, to complete a subject-oriented project in a group.
Learning activities:
LECTURES where the different scientific sections present themselves, their challenges and future prospects for the collective group of students.DEMONSTRATIONS/EXERCISES where examples that compliment and concretise the material from the lectures are shown.SUBJECT-SPECIFIC ARRANGEMENT.PROJECT WORK including presentation of results and a.
