Learning outcomes

After completing the course, students should be able to:

  • define, plan and carry out an improvement project in an organisation based on a generally given problem
  • use relevant working methods and tools to plan and control an improvement project and justify the choices of these
  • use relevant working methods and tools to identify and explain reasons for problems and suggest and justify appropriate improvements
  • present the project and its result in writing and orally
  • give constructive feedback on others' projects,
  • use relevant IT-based aids for presentations.


In the course, students carry out in groups a practical improvement project in quality technology. In the project work, students have the opportunity to put into practice in a service organisation knowledge and skills, primarily in quality technology and project management, that they have acquired earlier in their education. The application of quality technology methods to identify and explain problems and improve processes is central to the course. Furthermore a strong emphasis is put on writing project reports and presentation technique, critical review and the use of technical aids.


Lectures, supervision and project work.


Written project report that is presented orally. Oral and written critical review of the project report of another group.
