Course Aim
After completing the course the student shall have basic knowledge of what research is and how research is organized.

The student shall together with researcher/lecturer take part in a research project at the department. The research project can be of theoretically and/or applied character. The area varies a lot e.g. development of organization, product development, processes for changes, man-machine-interaction etc.

The lecturing will be adapted to the research project in consultation with student and researcher/lecturer.

Written report adapted to the research project, e.g. scientific article, research thesis, research sketch, application for a research project etc.

Supervisor will be appointed depending on the character of the project.

Students must register for the courses themselves, or contact ETS educational administration, not later than five days after the quarter commences. Failure to do so can result in the place being lost. This rule also applies to students with a guaranteed place.
