Learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • search, collect, evaluate and in a critical way interpret relevant  information in a problem within the field of Renewable Energy Production as well as critically discuss related phenomena, issues and situations,
  • independently identify, formulate and solve problems even with limited information, as well as plan and carry out advanced tasks using appropriate methods   within given time frames,
  • orally and in writing clearly present and discuss problems, solutions and conclusions for different target groups both in scientific and in popular form
  • work independently with advanced tasks within the field of Renewable Energy Production,
  • demonstrate a scientific approach,
  • provide a constructive criticism to other people's texts. 

Content

In the thesis the student is expected to apply the knowledge acquired during his/her studies by independently solving and presenting a task within the planned time. The task should be selected so that the knowledge gained from previous studies can be applied, broadened and deepened. Size-wise, the task should be adapted to be resolved within the given time frame. 

To achieve these goals during the course, the student needs to: 

  • independently, but with under some supervision, define and delimit a problem in Renewable Energy Production, investigate it, interpret and evaluate the results, as well as present the project orally and in writing, 
  • search, evaluate and compile information relevant to the chosen field, 
  • actively participate in seminars or possible other activities at the workplace where the work is performed. 

Instruction

Individual supervision  and seminars.

Assessment

Oral and written presentation of the degree project (further information under Other Directives). Opposition on another degree project (normally within the same programme), or equivalent (defined by the course examiner). 
 
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
