To be able to start the course, the student should first contact a teacher connected to the interest field and thereafter course coordinator. The course can only be offered if the department has enough resources and skills in the current field.

Intended learning outcomes

Having passed the course, the student shall be able to

  • choose a course of approach and define, follow and follow up a plan for carrying out the task in a given resource budget,
  • Present orally and in writing, a description and defense of a technical solution to a problem in robotics, perception and learning

in order to

  • be able to participate professionally in project work in activities in robotics, perception and learning.

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

P, F


  • PRO1 - Project work, 7.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
  • PRO2 - Project work, 7.5 credits, grading scale: P, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

As a first stage in the project work of the course a specification must be approved by the course coordinator. The specification should contain intended learning outcomes that can be accessed for each student and a description of how the examination should be carried out for both these and the general aims for this specific project.
The project work is divided into two parts with a half time evaluation between to allow individual follow up take place.
