Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The degree project should be a part of a deeper study within the program area and be on an advanced level in order to fulfill the requirements for a Masters of Science in Engineering degree/Master of Science degree. This means that the degree project normally should be carried out within the area that the student has been prepared for. If the student would like to carry out the degree project within a different area this should be approved by the director of undergraduate education.

Intended learning outcomes

The student should:

  • Be able to apply relevant knowledge and skills that has been acquired within the main field of study, to a given problem.
  • Within given bounds, and with limited information, independently be able to analyse and discuss complex issues and be able to handle larger problems on an advanced level within the field of study.
  • Reflect about, evaluate and critically review their own and others scientific results.
  • Be able to document and present their own work  with high demands on structure, formal requirements and language skills.
  • Be able to identify needs for further research and be able to continously develop their competence.
