The Faculty Board of Science and Technology
150 credits within science and technology including 30 second-cycle credits within electrical engineering.
On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
plan and implement a project related to electrical power systems, construction of electronic systems, microwave systems, signal processing or digital communications, performed in a smaller group and accomplished within given time limits,
analyse an open problem, formulate sub-problems, and subsequently find and evaluate solutions,
independently find, assess and use scientific and technical information with the aim to solve the project task,
demonstrate a solution to a complex task, and show that it fulfils a set of specifications,
present the conditions for the project and the project results orally and in writing, thereby also giving arguments for the choice of the selected solution.
Initial information on project organisation. The student chooses between project tasks that are formulated within electrical power systems, construction of electronic systems, digital communications, microwave systems or signal processing. The project task is solved in a smaller group with access to a supervisor who acts as an adviser. The students also have the possibility to formulate projects themselves or to chose projects that are formulated by companies and research groups.
Lectures, seminars and project supervision.
Written project report in English and oral presentation at а seminar. In addition to its technical content, the structure and clarity of the report is assessed.
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.
