Course Aim

After completing the course participants should be able to contribute to an engineering team within which they can perform independently towards a project goal. The student shall be able to:
1. Plan and manage a project and its associated risks
2. Engineer and construct functional industrial systems
3. present results publicly
4. author extensive reports.
Knowledge and understanding
Within this course, the participants must apply the skills they have learned in all previous courses, which might have been at an abstract level, to tangible systems. The students shall further develop skills such as

  • Project breakdown, planning with weekly reassessment and risk analysis
  • Team cooperation and communication
  • Extensive report writing in English.

Competence and skills
The course makes use of all previously learned engineering skills and reinforces them in a manner that enhances the participants' individual aspirations and specialization.
Judgement and approach
Since it is a new set of projects each year, the students have to conceptualize and engineer solutions to new problems and then implement them while tracking the risks within the whole project.


This course covers project management, engineering design and implementation within a team context, presentations (weekly and final), and an extensive report.

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

This course includes learning activities such as engineering design and simulations (e.g., SPICE, MATLAB, UML, SysML) and the implementation of these designs into a coherent and functional system. A workroom with computers is made available for the team members to cooperate towards their goal.

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.

The course is assessed through:

  • participation within a team to solve an industrial engineering challenge, which addresses the intended learning outcomes 1 and 2
  • Weekly and final presentations, which addresses the intended learning outcomes 1 and 3
  • Extensive report of the project, which relates to the intended learning outcome 4.

The course can not be combined with other project course at advanced level from the Department of Computer Science, Electrical and Space Engineering.
