Course Aim
After completing the course participants should be able to
1. have insight into current research and development work within the specific niche of your project,
2. be able to plan and adequately implement qualified tasks within given timeframes, thereby contributing to the development of knowledge and evaluating the conducted work,
3. in international contexts, be able to explain and discuss your conclusions and the knowledge and arguments that underlies them 

Contents
The main topics covered in the course are:
• Introduction - Overview of the course, description of available projects.
• Project planning - Overview of how to plan projects.
• Written presentation - Overview of how to present work in a scientific way.
• Oral presentation - Overview of how to orally present work.
 
Exact content is designed in dialogue with the examiner or appointed supervisor. The projects will be connected to the subjects Rock Mechanics, Rock Engineering or Geotechnics 

Realization
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 teaching and learning activities such as:
• Lecture - There the lecturer explains the most important theoretical aspects related to the course content, which you later apply in the different parts of your project work.
• Project work – Here you implement and apply your knowledge and skills acquired so far in your education and in this course for planning and implementation of an advanced project in Rock Mechanics, Rock Engineering or Geotechnics. You must also reflect on the solution and the alternatives that were available during the work. During the work, you document your work and have a dialogue with your supervisor (from the university and/or industry). The project work consists of three parts:
o Method - The part includes planning and implementation of the project and associated methods.
o Scientific article (essay) - The part includes writing a conference paper in English that describes the project in a scientific way. The paper must be of a high standard, supported by references and implemented so clearly that a person who is not familiar with the project will be able to take part in and continue working on the information produced.
o Oral presentation - This part includes planning and performing an oral presentation of the project.
• Reflection - For each of the three parts, you should give feedback on other student's work and reflect on your own performance.
• Supervision - You work together with your supervisor (from the university and/or industry). You make the arrangement for this together with your supervisor.
