TPG4920 - Petroleum Engineering, Master's Thesis
Examination arrangement: Master thesis
Grade: Letter grades
The master's thesis is an independent academic work of moderate proportions, often conducted in close cooperation with an industrial partner. The topic is chosen in collaboration with the supervisor. The master's thesis demands independence, a well developed critical sense, and is a first taste of methodical, academic training.
The student will complete a master's thesis within the discipline.
Knowledge: The student will be able to use scientific methods in the implementation of an independent project within the discipline.
Skills: The student will be able to prepare a project plan with milestones, report partial results and write a master's thesis in accordance with established standards and by use of relevant digital tools.
General competence: Documented scientific qualifications through completion of a master's thesis within the discipline.
Learning methods and activities
Independent thesis work under supervision. The thesis may wholly or partly be completed at an external company, in agreement with the academic supervisor. The project may be group based, by agreement.The work can also include the use of programming tools (e.g. MS Excel and Python).
- AI Declaration submission
Further on evaluation
Information about writing and submitting your master's thesis is found in Academic writing. Especially not the information given under Writing and submitting you master's thesis. Your area of study in Engineering/Technology. If the project is performed as group work, the students and supervisor shall make an agreement (preferably at start-up) about individual or joint assessment of the final project report. The master's thesis has to be submitted in NTNU's examination system Inspera Assessment. The deadline for submitting the master's thesis is 20 weeks from the starting date (the students have additional 6 weeks if they are writing a master's thesis abroad.) + 7 days for Easter/Christmas holidays. Applications for an extended deadline must be submitted to the Faculty of Engineering. Students who fail the master's thesis, can submit a new or revised thesis once. It is not possible to improve an awarded grade by submitting a new thesis. The deadline for the assessment of the master's thesis is 3 months.
The Faculty of Engineering's standard AI-declaration must be submitted upon thesis completion.
