Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

In this course, knowledge from the studies at KTH is applied in a project with research focus, generally commissioned by industrial partners in internal combustion engineering. The students work in an interdisciplinary and holistic manner, as true engineers. This includes to define your own project, to take your own decisions and initiative and to ensure that the project is completed on time and in accordance with the goals determined with industrial partners

Intended learning outcomes *

The student should after the course be able to:

• Find and analyse relevant knowledge on internal combustion engineering for the project, and summarise it in a literature study

• Formulate new and unique research questions that build on the knowledge acquired from the literature study

• Develop and follow a project plan including handling of possible deviations

• Carry out reproducible and relevant experiments in a safe and controlled manner - the experiments can consist of tests in an engine test bed and/or theoretical computer simulation of engines

• Constructively and critically analyse the results of the performed experiments

• Report the results in a coherent and well structured written report and an oral presentation
