Course contents *
The degree project is an individual assignment that is carried out of one or two students.
The student formulates a project proposal that has been presented to examiner for approval. The project proposal concerns specific background, aim, aim and method. It should give possibility to a natural progression of the knowledge and skills that have been acquired in the education.
Examiner controls, that the student satisfies the general and specific entry requirements for degree project and that the suggested degree project can satisfy the intended learning outcomes for degree project. Examiner also controls that the degree project falls in the degree programme/even subject area as well as that the issues show on appropriate progression in the education.
Examiner appoints supervisor at KTH and accepts possible other supervisor
The degree project can be registered after the examiner has accepted the assignment.
The student writes a plan for the degree project in which the problem/assignment and the preconditions for the implementation of the work be specified. The plan describes background including problem description and scientific aspects, purpose, aim, demarcations, the relevance of the project, methods and time plan for the implementation of the degree project. In the plan, a brief self-reflection where the student accounts for his preconditions to carry out the assignment is also inserted, as well as plan for how possible remaining courses should be completed. The plan for the degree project should be accepted of examiner.
