Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

In the course, you carry out a project to solve an production engineering problem with direct industry connection, together with a group of fellow students. The problem can be of different nature depending on the industrial sponsor's activities, size and current needs

Intended learning outcomes

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

  1. use relevant models and practical methods to prepare, compare and suggest sustainable solutions to an production engineering related problem supplied by industry
  2. use knowledge and skills from earlier courses in the master programme in Production Engineering and Management, and acquire new knowledge when necessary
  3. write a well-structured technical report that clearly describes the assignment, the methodology used for implementing and solving it, and clearly reports the results
  4. orally present and justify the project results
  5. provide arguments for chosen working methods and presented result and their reliability when it is exposed to criticism
  6. give constructive criticism on an equivalent production engineering related project work
  7. organise, handle and lead a complex and long-lasting project, in collaboration with project sponsors and group members
  8. analyse and document one's own contribution to the implementation and result of the project
