Each course occasion´s language and form is stated and appear on the course page on Luleå University of Technology's website.

The course do have lectures and minimum 2 lab works and one study visit. Lab works and study visit are compulsory and a visit at a company within the field of electronics development, design and production.

If there is a decision on special educational support, in accordance with the Guideline Student's rights and obligations at Luleå University of Technology, an adapted or alternative form of examination can be provided.

Examination is done via written exam and laboratory work. In order to pass the course it is required that all compulsory moments are passed. 

Requirements for pass (3) are basic understanding of the electronics production process, involved components, their handling, interconnect technologies, PCB/PWB technologies and product test. Requirements for grade 4 are in addition the understanding of environmental impact from electronics production and related standards and legislation.   Requirements for grade 5 are in addition a thorough knowledge on the production process, relation ship to product quality, environmental aspect and the impact of production volume to all aspects of electronics production.
