Literature and preparations

Specific prerequisites

Number credits (completely completed courses): According to decision in the Education Committee

All courses that are required for issuing the Degree of Bachelor and at least 60 credits of courses for second-cycle studies should be fully completed. These 60 credits should include all courses in the program [1] relevant to the degree project and a course in theory of knowledge.

A course in scientific methodology must be finally reported as completed with a passing grade.

[1] In the case that the student is enrolled both on a Master of Science in Engineering and a Master's programme.

The degree project should normally be carried out under the program´s last semester. The examiner should check that the student satisfies the entry requirements. Exemption from entry requirements can, after assessment, be granted by the Director of First and Second Cycle Education.
