Course contents *
The Master programme is concluded with a degree project in which the student is expected to demonstrate ability to independently solve an engineering problem by using a broad spectrum of skills. The subject for the degree project can vary but it must contain significant technical contents, have a clear application within chosen field and, if applicable, contribute to sustainable development. Provided that the degree project satisfies the requirements above, as decided by the course coordinator or examiner, and provided that qualified supervision is provided throughout the degree project, the student can choose to carry out the degree project either at an academic department, within an industrial company, or at a consulting firm, in Sweden or abroad.
