Intended learning outcomes

Subject knowledge

The students are expected to

  • systematically integrate knowledge acquired during the studies, especially in the field of protein engineering
  • apply experimental knowledge and subject knowledge in the main field of study
  • benefit from the content of relevant literature and relate their work to it

Personal and professional skills

The students are expected to demonstrate an ability to

  • plan, complete and report an independent work
  • account for and explain general models and theories about organisation, management and control of projects
  • formulate questions and set limitations within given time frames
  • search for and evaluate scientific literature

Working in groups and communicating

The students are expected to demonstrate an ability to

  • professionally express themselves in writing and orally
  • critically review and discuss an independent work presented in speech and writing
  • use methods for planning, structuring, monitoring and evaluating projects
  • understand the necessary conditions for constructive interaction between managers and participants in a project

CDIO engineering skills

The students are expected to be able to

  • create, analyse and/or evaluate technical solutions within the subject area of protein engineering
  • make assessments with regard to relevant scientific, social and ethical aspects

Course content

Physical / chemical properties of proteins are studied using biophysical methods such as fluorescence spectroscopy and circular dichroism. Specific course content is determined individually for each group in consultation with the examiner and supervisor. The work will be carried out in the main field of study.
The course also includes practical application of key concepts and methods in project management, eg group dynamics, project planning, project management role and project management and organization.

Teaching and working methods

The course consists of independent work in project form where the project is planned, monitored and reported on a continuous basis. For each group of students, a supervisor and examiner are appointed. The course is taking place throughout the spring.

About teaching and examination language

The teaching language is presented in the Overview tab for each course. The examination language relates to the teaching language as follows: 

  • If teaching language is Swedish, the course as a whole or in large parts, is taught in Swedish. Please note that although teaching language is Swedish, parts of the course could be given in English. Examination language is Swedish. 
  • If teaching language is Swedish/English, the course as a whole will be taught in English if students without prior knowledge of the Swedish language participate. Examination language is Swedish or English (depending on teaching language). 
  • If teaching language is English, the course as a whole is taught in English. Examination language is English. 

Other

The course is conducted in a manner where both men's and women's experience and knowledge are made visible and developed. 

The planning and implementation of a course should correspond to the course syllabus. The course evaluation should therefore be conducted with the course syllabus as a starting point.
