Course content

The course is intended as a preparation for the bachelor project and it is expected that the student will use all his/her available knowledge/skills/general competence in the work on this project. This is a project- and group-based course based on the students' own interests. The students themselves must form a group and find a client and a project. The groups can either acquire a client and project themselves, or choose from projects that are submitted to the institute from different organisations. The projects should be a preliminary project for the bachelor thesis.
