Learning outcomes

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

  • search and in a critical way interpret and compile relevant scientific literature
  • in a creative way delimit a scientific problem, plan a scientific study, choose appropriate methods, carry out the study, interpret and evaluate the results and explain the observations within given time frames
  • present the results in correct language for different target groups both in scientific and in popular form
  • work independently with a scientific approach within the chosen field of engineering


An independent project is carried out, where the knowledge from earlier completed courses are applied. The project is guided by a supervisor in close connection to ongoing projects in research or development.


Individual instruction and seminars.


Oral and written presentation of the degree project (further information under Other Directives). Oral and written 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.
