Course content

The 'Portfolio and Graduation Exhibition' is an extensive practical design project where students can further develop techniques and skills within their own field of study including project management. The Portfolio and Graduation Exhibition builds on knowledge and skills the students have acquired earlier in their studies and is largely student-driven.

Students are responsible - under the guidance of faculty - to build their own portfolio consisting of 3-5 self-selected projects from previous courses in their studies, where students are evaluated based on their presentation of the projects.

The portfolio is intended to help students convey their knowledge and skills when they are going out to seek jobs or further studies.

The class will be responsible for organizing and promoting the final exhibition using project management and marketing methods.
