Course content

Within the course, students undertake a project work that integrates engineering, behavioral and humanistic knowledge from the base block of the cognitive science programme. The work is performed in groups that formulate a scientific problem for a project specification that contains scheduling, time budgeting, risk analysis, roles, and division of labor. The focus of the projects varies and includes both empirical studies, technical system implementations, and evaluations of technical systems. The course also encompasses cognitive science research methodology and philosophy of science.

Teaching and working methods

Teaching takes the form of lectures, seminars and a larger project work under supervision. A project work is carried out in small groups. The student is expected to study independently, individually or in groups.

Examination

The course is examined through a written examination and a larger project work.

Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course twice are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.
