Learning outcome

Knowledge - The candidate

  • has in-depth knowledge of a selected topic in materials technology
  • has knowledge of research and development work within materials technology

Skills - The Candidate

  • can identify, formulate and solve a relevant engineering problem
  • can apply knowledge and relevant results from research and development work to solve theoretical, technical and practical problems within the topic of the bachelor thesis and justify their choices can apply engineering methods and be able to work methodically can document and disseminate engineering work
  • can plan and carry out engineering work

General competence - The candidate

  • imparts professional knowledge to various target groups both in writing and orally in Norwegian and English
  • has insight into scientific honesty and understanding of ethical issues
  • has insight into the environmental, health, social and economic consequences of products and solutions within their field and can put these in an ethical perspective and a life cycle perspective
  • integrates previously acquired knowledge and is able to acquire new knowledge in solving a problem

Learning methods and activities

The way of working is as described in the Handbook for the bachelor thesis and the project is an independent student-driven work. The expected time consumed is 550-600 hours of project work. The project work is carried out in groups of 2-3 students.

Compulsory assignments

  • Documentation of project management
  • Poster
  • Oral presentation
  • Pre-project

Further on evaluation

All mandatory work requirements must be approved to submit the bachelor's thesis and any product.

The bachelor thesis and any product are assessed as a whole. Grades are used in groups on scales A - F. UHR's Grade descriptions and assessment criteria for grading of bachelor theses in engineering are followed.

In case of disagreement about workload, an oral examination will be possible. If the bachelor's thesis failied (graded F), the student (s) must submit a new thesis. Improvement is not sufficient. The thesis may present the same subject area with the same empirical / data base.. When a bachelor's thesis has passed it can not be submitted for new assessment, even in a revised form. Voluntary repetitions of the bachelor assignment is not possible.
