Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The degree project is an individual engineering work, including theoretical and/or experimental activities, and report writing.

It should include both application and refinement of knowledge and skills acquired during previous engineering education, with a focus on Production engineering and management.

The project task should require professional engineering or equivalent skills. The work should have a certain degree of novelty, and include elements of assessment, analysis and synthesis.

A literature and/or state-of-the-art study should always be carried out. Depending on the character of the work, the literature study could be more or less extensive.

Intended learning outcomes *

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

  • account for the disciplinary foundation and applicable methods within the subject area "Production engineering and management", and demonstrate advanced knowledge in its current research and development
  • with overall view, critically and systematically search, collect and integrate knowledge, and identify the need for additional knowledge
  • identify, analyse, assess and handle complex phenomena, issues and situations, even with limited information
  • plan and with adequate methods carry out qualified assignments within given time frames, and evaluate this work
  • develop and evaluate products, processes, systems, methods or technical solutions, considering the preconditions and needs of people, and the aim of the society for economically, socially and ecologically sustainable development
  • orally and in writing, in dialogue with different groups, clearly account for and discuss one's own conclusions, and the knowledge and the arguments that these are based on
  • make assessments considering relevant scientific, social and ethical aspects
  • participate in research and development, or independently work in other qualified activities
