Course content

The specialization project is to be chosen with the fields of Catalysis, colloid and polymer chemistry, environmental engineering and reactor technology, process-system engineering or pulp, paper and biorefinery. The project will be given within current research activity in the research group or, in cooperation with faculty, as collaboration with external research institutes or industry. The project work will include definition and limitation of the work to be performed, literature search in current literature, a time schedule for the projects, experimental work or theoretical work, e.g. modeling, and interpretation and reporting of results.

Learning outcome

After completion of the course students should have obtained:
- in-debt knowledge in the core topics of the topics.
- skills in independent planning of R & D work and systematical treatment and interpretation of data and relevant information.
- experience of how to present results both written and orally.

Learning methods and activities

Individual laboratory or project-based work under supervision. The project includes an oral presentation that represents 10 % of the grade on the project.

Further on evaluation

Portfolio assessment is the basis for the grade in the course. The portfolio includes a work (90%) and oral presentation (10%). The results for the parts are given in %-scores, while the entire portfolio is assigned a letter grade.
For a re-take of an examination, all assessments during the course must be re-taken.
