Course Aim
The overall goal of the project course is that the student should be able to deal with important scientific issues in chemical separation engineering and catalysis areas. 

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
• Formulate a relevant problem for investigation within the subject area.
• Plan a project work in an efficient way.
• Design and carry out a project within the subject. 
• Solve problems independently in the project 
• Evaluate the results using the theoretical knowledge they learned. 
• Write a scientific report, give an oral presentation and defend the conclusions. 

The project theme shall be chosen in cooperation with the examiner and be related to modern research and development. 
Some advanced characterisation instruments, like SEM, BET and separation equipment or catalytic setup will be used.   

Each course occasion´s language and form is stated and appear on the course page on Luleå University of Technology's website.
The student will work independently with guidance.

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.
Written report and oral presentation. 
In the report and presentation, the student should show the ability to:
• Collect critical information relevant to the problem formulated.
• Describe the project in a scientific manner including the project plan, design and implementation of the project as well as the results and conclusions.
• Use the theoretical knowledge they learned to discuss the results obtained.   
• Give an oral presentation to present their own work.
