Course Aim

Within the frame of the course the student will develop his/her ability to model and solve an arbitrary engineering problem. With the previously read courses as a basis the student will pursue a deeper understanding of fundamental knowledge as well as a better overview of a specific field. The broadening and deepening follows within the framework of the specialization. The course will also further develop the participants' presentation skills and ability to work in groups.


The contents of the course is specified by the examiner, in the form of a detailed course description at that particular event of the course and may include topics such as: Problem formulation within the area of the discipline. Exact realization of content is depends on the project in question.


The realization of projects within the programme Engineering Physics and Electrical Engineering is aimed to let student groups collaborate with complementary competences from other groups or specializations.The aim is to give the participants knowledge and experience required to work in research and development projects.
Participants will make assessments of the possibilities and limitations of technology, its role in society and people's responsibility for its use, including social and economic aspects as well as environmental, work environment and equality aspects. 

The group works under the guidance of a supervisor. The supervisor will help the group to structure their work and also support them as they acquire and build new knowledge and abilities.It is normal for the group to have meetings with the supervisor on a regular basis. In these meetings the group presents its progress.Within the course the students will give oral presentations. One in mid term where a peer assessment is done and a final presentation where also a written report is presented. This is the general idea and deviations may occur.


Midterm and peer assessed presentation is given and the finished project is presented as a written report and an oral presentation at LTU. In case of industrial partners the group also gives a presentation at the industrial partner. The group of teachers will have meetings with the students to assess their performance. The final grade will be based on the student’s contribution to the project.

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

Literature. Valid from Autumn 2018 Sp 1 (May change until 10 weeks before course start)
Project courses on advanced level at the Department of Computer Science, Electrical and Space Engineering are of different character and can contain project work, seminars, and lectures. Therefore, it is hard to set the literature in advance. Contact the examiner for more information.
