Course contents *
The main contents will be adapted to the current situation of the thesis in the form of subject specialization, application area, academic or industiral environment, nationally or internationally, and the like.
Students are expected to demonstrate their ability to, with a high degree of initiative and independence, formulate and solve an engineering problem using a wide range of skills. The topic of the thesis may vary but must contain a significant technical content and have a clear application in internal combustion engine area.
Intended learning outcomes *
After the course the student will be able to
- apply relevant knowledge and skills acquired in the technology to a given problem
- within a given framework, even with limited information, independently analyze and discuss complex issues, and deal with major problems at the advanced level in the technology
- reflect on and critically review their own and others' scientific achievements
- be able to document and present their work, for a given target, with the highest standards of structural, formal and language processing
- be able to identify the need for further knowledge and continuously upgrade their skills
These KTH common goals should be the basis of course objectives for all theses. Additional or specific price target for the thesis may be developed by schools, for training or for individual graduate work topics
Specific learning outcomes:
The student should
- show detailed knowledge of the principles of internal combustion engine design, function, combustion and emission formation
- be able to propose, explain and defend the construction and design solutions for internal combustion engines
- be able to propose, explain and defend the choice of measurement methods, measurement systems and simulation tools for internal combustion engines
- demonstrate the ability to in both Swedish and English, orally and in writing in dialogue with others, present and discuss his or hers findings on combustion-related problems and solutions.
