Course Aim

In the course, the student solves an unstructured problem of a research and development nature by e.g. modelling, programming and use scripting tools. The student learns to use basic principles from previous courses to solve a practical problem within the specialization computational physics and technology. The course includes practical training in terms of presentation techniques and the ability to collaborate in groups.

After completing the course, the student should be able to perform:

  • Practical application of simulation tools.
  • Present their results orally and in a report.
  • Assessment of the possibilities and limitations of technology, its role in society and people's responsibility for how it is used, including social and economic aspects as well as environmental, work environment and gender equality aspects.
  • Give constructive criticism of others' work and presentations.
  • Orally present technical report and reflect on one's own and others' presentation techniques.


Course content is specified, by the examiner, at the relevant course opportunity in a detailed course description that contains a problem formulation within the technology area for each project. Exact content is dependent on the current project.

Each course occasion´s language and form is stated and appear on the course page on Luleå University of Technology's website.
Execution of projects within technical physics and electrical engineering with the aim that participants with complementary competencies will collaborate and acquire the basic knowledge and skills required to work in research and development projects.

The project work is carried out with the help of supervisors whose work is focused on providing support and structure in the students' own acquisition of knowledge and skills. It is normal to have regular meetings with supervisors at which the student group presents their progress and discusses the project. Lectures related to work in the project may occur.

Within the framework of the course, oral presentations take place normally on two occasions in front of everyone who attends the course. These occasions are at half-term when peer assessment of the students is also done, and another in connection with the end when the project presents orally and the project report is completed. Deviations may occur.

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 completed project work is presented in the form of written reports, oral lectures and a final report at LTU and in the event of industrial participation at the participating industrial company. The participants conduct a peer review of each other's presentations. In addition, the teacher group will conduct oral review meetings as well as individual conversations which can be grade-based. Final grades are given based on the participant's participation and contribution to the project.


The course cannot be included in the degree together with F7042T Project in Engineering Physics and Electrical Engineering - Engineering Physics.
