Grade: Letter grades
|Evaluation||Weighting||Duration||Grade deviation||Examination aids|
The student shall make an in-depth study of a specific topic within engineering design and materials. The work shall be based on scientific methods; collecting knowledge through a literature studies or other means, and combine this with knowledge acquired through previous and current studies. A project plan with milestones shall be made, and the student shall continuously report progress and results during the work and write a final project report according to current standards.
Knowledge: The student shall have knowledge on using and adapting existing methods, mainly within selected course module, for problem solving within the disciplines of the department. Moreover, s/he shall know how to organize, limit (scope), plan, do and act within a project. The candidate shall also know how systematic technical problem solving and research shall be reported to provide required integrity and value.
Technical skills: The student must be able to prepare a project plan with milestones, report partial results and write a project report in accordance with established standards. The candidate shall be able to perform technical work of limited scope within existing framework, generating results that supports conclusions in relation to the main objectives of the work. S/he shall master writing of technical reports and communication, technically as well as on a more general basis.
General competence: The student shall on general basis be able to apply captured knowledge, competence and skills to carry through tasks that are less structured and more similar to the needs and tasks that s/he will face in the practical (working) life after graduation.
