Course content

The Bachelor's thesis is carried out within the course's subject areas and according to the bachelor's manual

Learning outcome

- The candidate has in-depth knowledge of a selected topic in materials technology
- The candidate has knowledge of the management and documentation of projects

- The candidate can identify, formulate and solve a relevant problem
- The candidate can utilize knowledge and skills from several disciplines in the study, as well as make independent research where necessary
- The candidate can acquire skills in project management when carrying out and documenting a project work
- The candidate can find, evaluate and refer to information and subject matter and produce this so that it highlights a problem

General competence:
- The candidate can identify, formulate and solve relevant problems in the field of materials technology, and thus work well as an engineer in the workplace.
- The candidate can convey knowledge within his field of study to different audiences both in writing and verbally

Learning methods and activities

The way of working is as described in the bachelor's manual and the project is an independent student-driven work.

The expected time consumed is 550 hours of project work.

Compulsory assignments

  • Pre-project

Further on evaluation

In addition to the report and the end product, the evaluation can also emphasize the implementation of the entire project work, as the project is documented in the digital project management folder and the oral presentation. A common grade is usually given for the project group, but individual grades can be given if the members have shown a large spread in work effort and in contribution to the result. 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.

Specific conditions

Exam registration requires that class registration is approved in the same semester. Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.

Admission to a programme of study is required:
Materials engineering (FTHINGMAT)

Required previous knowledge

Access to the course requires admission to the study programme Bachelor of Engineering, Materials Technology, NTNU, Trondheim.

To start the bachelor's thesis in engineering, the student must have passed a minimum of 110 credits of 120 study-oriented credits from the first two years of engineering education. These 110 credits must include 60 credits from the first year of study.
