Intended learning outcomes

To pass the course, the students should show that they are able to

• describe, explain and demonstrate relevant methods and computation models for a scientific problem within a selected topic,

• choose an appropriate solution method for the selected topic,

• shortly present and discuss (oral and in writing) theory and case studies within the selected topic.

Course main content

As the aim of the course is to develop the students ability to carry out research, it is natural that most of the learning in the course will be depending on self-studies, such as reading textbooks, technical reports, master and doctoral theses and scientific papers, and of course the students’ own research efforts. In addition to this, students will get supervision from an experience researcher in the field, who will teach the students concerning good research practice as well as provide guidance on how to solve different research problems.


Before course start the student should have agreed with the examiner on a suitable topic.  The student will then work indipendently with this topic under supervision of an experienced researcher.


AK2030 Theory and Methodology of Science. Moreover, other mandatory or electional courses can be required depending on the topic of the project.

The examiner should have approved that the student has sufficient prerequisites to carry out an individual research project.


The student will search for course literature with support of the supervisor.
