EH1010 Project Course in Electrical Engineering 7.5 credits

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.

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 course focuses on providing an understanding of problems associated with engineering project work.

The theoretical part consists of the following elements: The project as a form of work. Overview and examples of project models. The different phases of a project. Routines for project management. Documents in a project, e.g. project plan, status report, technical report and final report. Introduction to equality and equal treatment, ethics and sustainability.

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

After completing the course, students shall be able to

  • describe and use the principles of project work
  • create the fundamental documents required for planning, following up, and finishing a project
  • describe an interesting application of electrical engineering
  • describe the fundamental prerequisites for engineering development work and independently be able to perform such a work effort
  • present technical information in oral and written form
  • reflect on equality and equal treatment, ethics and sustainability in relation to a product development project

in order to

  • be able to make use of the knowledge of project work and apply it throughout the education.
