Oral presentations at seminars

During the whole course: independent work with problem formulation, information retrieval, project planning and project follow-up, oral presentations and report writing

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the degree project course, the student should be able to:

  • independently identify, formulate, assess and handle problems within the "Product realization and industrial engineering" subject area
  • show a basic ability to apply knowledge, methodology and skills that have been acquired during the education, on problems within the subject area
  • account for the scientific basis and applicable methods within production engineering and display deepened knowledge within some part of this subject area
  • analyse the need of scientific information, carry out information retrieval, evaluate the received information and identify his need for additional knowledge
  • critically discuss phenomena, issues and situations within the subject area "Product realization and industrial engineering", considering relevant scientific, social, ethical and sustainability aspects
  • illustrate and describe how technology, economics and leadership issues interact in for a given problem
  • plan and carry out assignments within given time frames, with relevant methods
  • orally and in writing account for and discuss information, problems and solutions, in dialogue with different groups:
    - present the work in a scientific report that fulfills the given requirements on contents, structure and language
    - in the report, refer to sources, figures, tables and formulae, in an established way
    - write a summary of the report in English with correct use of the terminology of the subject
    - carry out oral presentations with requirements on keeping to time limits, clear contents, language, delivery and illustrations
    - review and comment on another degree project work and be able to respond to criticism on ones own work
  • show such skills that is required to work independently within some part of the main field of study, i.e. "Technology"
