Course Aim

After the course, you will:
- have insight into current research and development work within the specific niche of your project,
- be able to plan and adequately implement qualified tasks within given timeframes, thereby contributing to the development of knowledge and evaluating the conducted work,
- in international contexts, be able to explain and discuss your conclusions and the knowledge and arguments that underlies them 


Contents

You design the course content and activities together with the examiner or appointed supervisor. The projects will be within the subject of Rock Mechanics, Rock Engineering or Soil Mechanics. 


Realization

In the course, you apply the knowledge you have acquired previously in the education. To accomplish this, you have to participate in the planning and implementation of an advanced research assignment in Rock Mechanics, Rock Engineering or Soil Mechanics. The report must be of high quality, supported by references and presented in a way that a person not involved in the project can use and continue working on the data and results you obtained. You present your work in the form of a conference paper as well as orally, and you have to reflect on your solution and different options available during your work. You are assigned a supervisor from the university and, in addition where needed, a suitable external supervisor with professional experience. 


Examination

The examination consists of three parts: Method, Essay and Presentation. The Method includes planning and implementation of the project and related methods. The Essay includes writing a conference paper in English about the project. The Presentation includes planning and conducting an oral presentation of the project. 


Examiner
Individual examiner appointed

Literature. Valid from Autumn 2019 Sp 1 (May change until 10 weeks before course start)
Depends on the project chosen, and will therefore be decided later.
