Course content

This course contains a specialisation project at 15 ECTS credits. The specialisation project typically forms the basis for the Master’s project. The course content varies depending on the specialisation profile the student is enrolled in, and the selected research problem. The research topic is in the field of Electric Power Engineering and Energy Systems, covering one or more of the subfields:
- Electric Energy Conversion.
- Electric Power Technology.
- Electric Power Systems.
- Energy Analysis and Energy Planning

Learning outcome

Knowledge: After completing the course, the student shall have obtained: * extensive background and knowledge in the selected research topic, which will enable him/her to address a precise research problem. * good knowledge in related topics. * good knowledge about relevant scientific literature. Skills: After completing the course, the student will be able to: • perform scientific literature review/survey. • utilise theory, methods, techniques, and tools necessary to address a research problem. • give an oral presentation of the research work carried out. • write a technical report according to a standard setup. General competence: After completing the course, the student will be able to: • communicate the research topic with specialists as well as general public. • develop applied project management skills, i.e., define and execute a project plan with milestones, intermediate deliverables, status reports, etc. • build scientific temperament in the acquisition of knowledge through research work. • obtain awareness of integrity and ethics in research work.
- contribute to innovation and innovation processes.

Learning methods and activities

• Independent/collaborative project work with guidance. It must be agreed at the start of the semester if students are to work together on the project assignment. • Participation in an introductory seminar at the beginning of the semester is compulsory.

Further on evaluation

• Regular meetings with supervisor(s). • The project work must be documented in a project report. • After submission of the report, the student must give an oral presentation of the project in front of employees and fellow students. The oral presentation does not affect the grade given for the project work.
