Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The degree project should treat a, from a media technology aspect, interesting problem. For the assignment to be appropriate as degree project, there need 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.
