Intended learning outcomes
The aim of the course is to introduce and explain the engineering role and the meaning of the various objectives of the engineering education. The course should also serve as a course in which the educational program's structure is clarified, the various upcoming courses in the education are presented and the connection between the courses in the education program and the degree objectives is emphasized.
Having passed the course, the student should be able to:
use academic calendars, course syllabuses, intended learning outcomes and grading criteria to plan their studies on both short and long view
plan and carry out assignments in stipulated time
make well justified specialisation and course choices
review critically and reflect on both the set-up and implementation of the education as well as their own study achievements
reflect on different topics relevant for the education and the professional role, such as progression in subject knowledge and generic skills, plagiarism, own responsibility, study technique, procrastination, internationalisation, health, minorities and equality, student influence and quality of education
identify their need for additional knowledge and continuously develop their competence
analyze and evaluate social and ethical consequences of applications of medical engineering
account for some important events in the history of medical engineering
carry out an academic study of a given topic and present it orally and in writing
in order to
obtain an overall picture of the education and thereby better understanding of the importance of each individual course
make informed choices both during the education and thereafter
influence the development of the program.
