The starting period and completion are decided by the supervisor and the student. All periods are relevant. The course will normally consist of work where the aim is to combine assignments of theoretical or experimental nature with practical ones. The work can for example include a study of a relevant problem that can be solved by way of literature study or theoretical analysis. Other types of assignments can be more consultancy or task-oriented, where one can solve a problem in collaboration with a municipal or industrial partner or in collaboration with an ongoing research project.
The goal of the project work is to provide the students with experience in solving concrete problems of a scientific, analytical or practical, technical nature. The students also get practice in project planning and in reporting the achieved results.
Project work, supervised self-study.
The students get close personal supervision for the assignment. In addition, the students can use e-mail in order to ask the course responsible specific questions.
Depending on the assignment.
The course can normally not be attended before the 3rd year of study. This implies that the student has undertaken the basic courses in science and mathematics and also has some basic courses in technology. The latter is not a prerequisite.
For a course of 5 credits, ca. 150 hours of work in total is normally to be expected.
