Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course comprises the independent design and completion of a project, including the accompanying documentation. This implies deciding on a research question, systematically collecting data, analysing and processing the question using scientific methodology, and presenting this piece of work. The work should display the ability to methodically reflect on knowledge that is related to future professional work.

Intended learning outcomes

After completion of the course, the student should be able to independently, in dialogue with supervisors:

• demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the scientific foundation and best practices for the chosen subject, as well as an advanced understanding of current research and development within the area and in-depth knowledge of research methodology.

• demonstrate the ability to search for, collect and integrate knowledge, and identify their needs of further knowledge, in a comprehensive, critical, and systematic way

• demonstrate the ability to identify, analyse, assess and handle complex phenomena, issues and situations, even with limited information.

• demonstrate the ability to plan and, with adequate methods, carry out high-quality tasks within given time frames, as well as evaluate the work.

• demonstrate the ability to develop and evaluate products, processes, systems, methods or technical solutions, taking into consideration people's abilities and needs, and society's goals for economically, socially and ecologically sustainable development.

• demonstrate the ability to, orally and in writing, in dialogue with different groups, account for and discuss their conclusions, including the knowledge and arguments on which the conclusions are based

• demonstrate the ability to exercise judgement considering relevant scientific, social and ethical aspects.

• demonstrate the skills required to participate in research and development work or to independently work in other advanced contexts.
