Course Aim
The student develops knowledge in a field not covered by ordinary courses and to learn to work independently, close to research.

This means that on completion of the course the student is able to:
  • Formulate a relevant problem for investigation from a chosen subject within the subject area Mechanical Engineering.  
  • Apply knowledge and proficiency that has been acquired during the period of study to a complex development project or a smaller research project in an independent and systematic manner.  
  • Choose and justify the study method for an investigation.
  • Analyse and defend the problem formulated in a correct manner with respect to science and engineering, without complete information.
  • Locate and critically review information and summarise this in a scientific manner.
  • Plan, structure and execute a project within research, development or investigation.
  • Express themselves well in writing in a verbally and scientifically correct manner.

The content of the course is specified, by the examiner, in a detailed course description at the course occasion. The course is often given close to ongoing research projects at the Department of Engineering Sciences and Mathematics.

Each course occasion´s language and form is stated and appear on the course page on Luleå University of Technology's website.
The realization of the course is specified, by the examiner, in a detailed course description at the course occasion. The course is on advanced level so the students are expected to take a bigger responsibility for their learning compared to basic courses.
