On completion of the course, the student should be able to
- use previous knowledge in physics to plan a project within a choosen branch of physics
- carefully examine a scientific question by constructing and evaluating e.g. experimental measurements, theoretical arguments and/or computations
- search, critically assess and compile relevant scientific literature
- present the results of the project in both written and oral form
The content is defined together with the program coordinator and program advisor to promote further studies within a particular specialisation of the Master programme in Physics.
Self studies and a project work. Reading a course in another subject may be part of the project.
Written and oral examination of the project performed by the program coordinator and a teacher with the necessary specialisation.
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.
