Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

This course consists of activities to carry out a degree project at second cycle level in a subarea of sustainable production development . This can concern industrial design, design, analysis, optimisation, choice of material, manufacturing and operation of different technical systems and products in the area of sustainable production development.

The main result will be a final written report, the degree project and an oral presentation. Relevant and scientifically valid results in the degree project require use of knowledge in different fields that are covered by earlier completed courses and additional studies and industrial experience based on need. The student develops proficiencies in the process to create new knowledge based on established theories and methods. The results of the work must have relevance for industrial application in addition to academic relevance.

The course contains seminars to develop the degree project. The continuous discussion about the degree project with supervisor and in seminars is an important part of the course.
