ED2247 Project in Fusion Research 9.0 credits

The goal of the course is to give the student practical experience of working with tasks relevant for fusion research, such as preparing, conducting and analysing fusion-relevant experiment, modelling processes relevant for fusion research, analyse simulations, or develop simulation tools. A studen may only be admitted to the course after approval by examiner. Admittance to the course is subject to availability of project and supervisors. The student must therefore first establish contact with the division and be assigned a supervisor.
