Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Calculus and Linear Algebra.

Intended learning outcomes

The course shall give the students a perspective on scientific work in the field of mathematics. It shall also introduce the basic methods for project management. After the examination of the course, and participation in the project work, the student should be able to:

  • give concrete examples where mathematical methods are used for solving technically relevant problems
  • work in a project according to a project model
  • present the results obtained in the project both orally and in a written report
  • plan the work within a project according to given requirements, and create a project plan
  • find knowledge of relevance and solve the tasks relevant to the project.

Course content

Lectures: Project descriptions. The LIPS project model. Information search. Oral and written communication. Introduction to programing with Matlab.

Project work: Contents according to the specific project task. Work according to the project model LIPS. Writing a project plan. Administration and documentation of the ongoing project work. Documentation and presentation of the results. Reflections on the finished work.

Teaching and working methods

The course consists of a series of lectures and a project. The lectures aim to prepare the students for project work by bringing up topics such as project models, oral communication, and information search. Also give the students insight into their future role as mathematicians.
The project work is documented in a written report and also presented orally. The course ends with a small conference where the students present their work.
