General courses

During the master studies one course is mandatory, at least three out of five conditionally elective courses must be chosen, some recommended courses will be taken, 15 credits can be freely chosen, and the last semester a master thesis project will be performed. It is recommended that the mandatory and conditionally elective courses are taken during the first year, but the student is free to create his or her own schedule during the two years. Note that courses given during the spring semester should be taken in the first year since the master thesis project is scheduled to the spring semester in the second year.

ME2814 can be replaced by the following courses and counted as a recommended course: ME2016 Project Management, Leadership and Control, AL2160 Environmental Management,  LS2429 Technical communication in English (period 2 or 3 in year 2), or corresponding course(s) with a maximum of 7.5 credits. If the student wants to take another course than the ones mentioned here, the program responsible must approve before the course starts.

Recomended courses may be cancelled if number of admitted students are less than minimum of places, or will be given every second year.
