The thesis work shall consider a relevant problem within the area of Industrial information- and control system. Suggestions on thesis work can be found on the department’s homepage. The student can also suggest subjects for a thesis, but it has to be approved by the supervisor. To be approved as a master thesis subject, an interesting subject within the area of Industrial information- and control system must be defined. The focus of the work should be on investigation and analysis. Programming can be included. The extent of the work should be that it requires at least five qualified work months.

The work effort includes the development of a detailed specification, a contract, a project plan, and to seek and study literature that is directly relevant for the thesis work. The result is presented in a written report and orally at one of the seminars for master thesis provided by the department. If the work is done at a company, it can also be required to present the work orally there as well.

The aim of the course is to develop the student’s ability to independently carry out and report a work effort within the area of Industrial information- and control system.
