The student should be able to
- do on engine development or investigation with laboratory tests or simulation
- apply knowledge gained in combustion engines or other relevant KTH courses
- contribute to development of the combustion engine, since all projects represent industrially relevant challenges
- working in a project group
Course main content
The project course enables to put into practice newly won knowledge in combustion engines or other relevant KTH courses
The focus of the project is chosen in discussions between the examiner and the students, who normally work in groups with different projects
The problem shall be relevant in such a way that it is stimulating for the students and preferably so interesting for the industry that the industry supply necessary extra test equipment and send representatives to listen to the compulsory official presentation.
The examiner, the department’s doctoral students and the employed laboratory personnel work as supervisors. The well equipped department workshop assists in manufacturing test equipment. In certain cases, also the industry assists with supervision and test equipment.
For projects based on simulation, licenses for modern software are supplied.
