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

Compulsory courses from the first and second year of the programme.

Intended learning outcomes

The course is designed to give students further experience to an engineer’s approach to analyze a task, solving problems, organizing the required activities to complete the task and working in groups. This is a practical course in which students work in groups, in a simulated working environment to complete an assigned task. The course will end with written and oral presentations of the groups’ accomplishments. By the end of the course, students will be able to:

  • plan a project after receiving a problem statement and to generate project
  • prepare a proper timetable (Gannt chart)in order to meet the requirements of a project
  • collaborate with the members of a project group
  • take initiative and find creative solutions to problem
  • make oral and written presentations of project work in English.

Course content

The project work is performed in groups of 4-6 students and is organized in two parts. First, a project plan is worked out for the project which includes project activities inserted in a timetable (Gannt chart). The second part involves planning and implementation of experiments as well as evaluation of data and documentation of results. During the project the students should work independently, although a supervisor is available as a discussion partner to support the project. The project work should be continuously documented and at the end of the course the results should be presented by an oral presentation and a written report. Both the presentation and the report must be approved by the examiner/supervisor.

Teaching and working methods

Project work. The course ends with a presentation of the projects in a seminar.
