• based on a given problem select, adapt and combine different methods, and be able to motivate and critically reflect on these choices

• search for, collect, evaluate and critically interpret relevant information

• explain and discuss information, problems and solutions

Course main content

The degree project should examine an interesting problem in media technology. A task suitable as thesis work should investigate relevant questions from the subject area. The focus of the work should be on research and analysis. Any practical work, such as programming, should be of secondary importance, and aim to investigate the research questions.

The work includes making a detailed specification and schedule for the work and to search and read literature that is relevant to the degree project. The scope should be such that it is evident that the student has worked half time during one semester. The work should be presented in a report and orally. Mandatory supervision sessions will be offered.
