The aim of this course is to give the students an opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge they have gained during previous courses on a project with industrial connection and relevance. The goal is primarily to give the students experience of how you work in a project and how a problem is approached and addressed in a constructive, logic and efficient way.
Content and learning outcomes
In the course, you carry out a project, to solve a production engineering task provided by industry, in a group of fellow students. The focus/character of the task can vary depending on the company business, its size and its current needs.
Intended learning outcomes
After passing the course, the student will be able to:
- use relevant models and practices for developing, comparing and suggesting solutions to a production engineering problem provided by industry
- use knowledge and skills acquired in previous courses, and gather additional knowledge when required
- write and formulate a well structured technical report that in a clearly defines the problem, describes the methodology for approaching and solving the problem, and outlines the result
- orally present and motivate the results
- argue for selected methods and presented result and their reliability, when criticized
- evaluate and criticize another project and its results
- organise and manage a long-lasting and complex project, considering the project provider, the supervisor and the project group
The project team work autonomously, with support and guidance from teachers and staff at the department, and from the project provider, and with regular status reports.
The work is documented in a technical report where the approach for solving the problem the recommended solution is presented, with clear motivations.
The project course is concluded with oral project presentations.

Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- INL1 - Assignment, 6.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Other requirements for final grade
Approved project work (PRO1; 6 cr)
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
