EH1010 Project Course in Electrical Engineering 7.5 credits

Elektroprojekt

Developing new technical systems is today a process that requires not only technical knowledge but also a structural approach including planning and presentation of the task. A successful participation in such a team work therefore requires the ability to:

  • Separate a task into clear problem definitions.
  • Plan and manage the work according to the problem definitions.
  • Work in a team
  • Present the results both orally and in written form.

To get an insight into electrotechnical project work a practical task is combined with theoretical studies of project management. The theoretical part deals with fundamental project management as planning and documentation.

Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The course consists of planning, carrying out and presenting an electrical engineering task as a project. The task represents an activity in the field of electrical engineering at KTH.

The theoretical part consists of project models, project management, documents in project management like start-up report and progress report and finally concluding and evaluating a project.

The practical part consists of planning, carrying out and presentation of a technical task. The projects are carried out in teams of 4-5 students at the different laboratories belonging to the school of electrical engineering.

Intended learning outcomes *

Upon completion of this course, participants shall be able to:

  • describe the fundamental prerequisites for engineering development work and independently be able to perform such a work effort
  • describe and use the principles of project work
  • present technical information in oral and written form
  • mention some fundamental prerequisites for industrial projects
  • create the fundamental documents required for planning, following up, and finishing a project
  • describe an interesting application of electrical engineering
  • make use of the knowledge of project work and apply it throughout the education
