Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The degree project should treat a, from a media technology perspective, interesting problem. For the assignment to be appropriate as degree project, there must to be interesting issues from the subject area to investigate. The emphasis of the work should lie on investigation and analysis. Possibly practical work, for example programming, should be of subordinate importance and aim for examining questions at issue.

Included in the work is to make a precise specification and time plan for the assignment and to search and read literature relevant for the degree project. The extent should be such that it is clear that the student has worked half-time during a semester. The work should be presented in writing in a report and be presented in speech. Compulsory supervision meetings will occur.

Intended learning outcomes

  • based on a given problem formulation, choose, adapt and combine different methods as well as be able to justify and reflect critically about these choices
  • search, collect, evaluate and critically interpret relevant information for a problem
  • give an account of and discuss information, problems and solutions
  • identify their need of additional knowledge and to develop their skills
