Intended learning outcomes

The student should:
- Be able to apply the relevant knowledge and skills, which are acquired within the technical area, to a given problem
-Within given constraints, even with limited information, independently analyze and discuss complex inquiries/problems and handle larger problems on the advanced level within the technical area
- Reflect on, evaluate, and critically assess one’s own and others’ scientific results
- Be able to document and present one’s own work, for a given target group, with strict requirements on structure, format, and language usage.
- Be able to identify one’s need for further knowledge and continuously develop one’s own competencies.

Course main content

The degree project must carry out a portion of a specialization within the main field of study in the second cycle in order to fulfil the requirements for a master’s degree. This means that the degree project must be carried out within the main field of study for the programme, for which the student is prepared. A project within another field of study can be allowed following a trial examination by the Director of Undergraduate and Masters´ studies (GA) at the respective school.


The main portion of the studies, at least 240 credits, must generally be completed before the degree project can be started. It is the duty of the examiner to see that the student has the specialization corresponding to that described above and that a main portion of the studies are completed before the project is initiated. After a trial examination by the Director of Undergraduate and Masters´ studies (GA) at the respective school, exemption can be allowed if found appropriate. The degree project must normally be carried out during the programme’s last term.
