In Tracks Courses, students with different educational backgrounds solve interdisciplinary problems together. The courses are often implemented in close collaboration with the cutting edge of research and representatives from the industry. All courses are held in English and can either be at basic or advanced level.
“We continue to offer courses with exciting opportunities to work with contemporary research and societal challenges. As an example, this spring, there is a course working with graphene applications that gives an opportunity to come really close to the latest research already as a student. We also have a course in Statistical engineering practices for industrial development that match perfectly with any theses work, and finally we have our popular courses in music engineering and AI within emerging technology that both are given for the third time”, says Mikael Enelund, leader of Tracks.
How and why – apply for a Tracks course!
Kristina Henricson Briggs, vice leader of Tracks, thinks that everyone that are looking for a course as part of their electives or a course as extra curriculum should consider taking a Tracks course.
– I think there is something that can be interesting for everyone! This is a great opportunity to take a a step towards working life already during your studies since the students get experience from working in a team with mixed backgrounds.
To apply for Tracks courses, the student contacts the examiner of each Tracks course, who is responsible for admission and registration. The examiner in the course can give more information about the application, start and end times and other questions that are course specific.
Course specific prerequisites for each course (basic: level: TRA100 and advanced level: TRA105) are described in the syllabus that is found at the Study portal.
