Learning outcomes

After completing the course, students should be able to:

  • seek, collect, evaluate and critically analyse relevant information in a problem,
  • independently identify, formulate and handle questions, and analyse and evaluate different solutions within given time frames,
  • critically discuss phenomena, issues and situations,
  • make assessments taking relevant technical, scientific, societal and ethical aspects into account,
  • orally and in writing give an account of and discuss information, problems and solutions in dialogue with different groups,
  • work independently in the field of industrial engineering and management,
  • demonstrate a scientific approach.


In the degree project, the student should apply skills acquired during the study period by independently treating and presenting an assignment within a given time frame based on results from the course Degree Project Feasibility Study in Industrial Engineering and Management. The assignment should be chosen so that knowledge acquired during previous studies in the Bachelor's Programme in Leadership - Quality Management - Improvement can be applied, broadened and deepened.


Independent research or development work, report writing, individual supervision and seminars.


Oral and written presentation of the degree project (see Other Directives). Critical review of another degree project (normally within the same programme), or an equivalent assignment defined by the 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 targeted pedagogical support from the University's disability coordinator.
