Content and learning outcomes
The course is an advanced project course, where the students carry out a smaller research study in close cooperation with researchers in the field of interactive media technology. By participating in the research current issues in the research domain are concerned which work as preparation for the degree project. All projects have a strongly technical nature with a deepening within the student's specialisation in the Master's programme but offer at the same time further profiles towards for example design, development or evaluation in a specific application field. The projects are carried out usually in groups of 2-3 students but there can also be other set-ups depending on the extent and nature of the project. The course is examined through project work and a research article that summarises issues, methods and results. The article is presented at the end of the course for researchers and other students in a student conference. In addition to this the project will be documented and be reported continuously to the involved researchers as well as for other students.
Intended learning outcomes
On completion of the course, students should be able to:
- run and carry out project work with the purpose of produce scientifically based results
- argue for methodological, technological, and design related choices in the project work
- express project & research results in academic writing
- present and argue for project & research results before an audience
- use terms and concepts related to research in the area of the project work
Literature and preparations
For single course students, 90 credits are required of which 45 credits in computer and information science or informatics. Furthermore, a basic course in human computer interaction is required.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- INL1 - Written assignment, research paper, 2.5 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
- PRO1 - Project in collaboration with a research group, 5.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, 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.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
