Eligibility

General entry requirements for bachelor's level (first cycle)

Specific entry requirements

The specific entry requirements are the same as for the programme the course is taken within

Course specific prerequisites

The degree project may be commenced after successfully passed courses of 120 hec (higher education credits). Specific courses necessary for the particular project must be passed before the work begins. The degree project shall be approved by the examiner before the work begins.

Aim

The degree project shall mean a deepening of some part of the program topics and provide training to independently formulate and solve a more comprehensive engineering problem.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • acquire and apply advanced knowledge within the field of the engineering program, including deeper insight into current development.
  • with a comprehensive view, independently and creatively, formulate and handle issues and analyze and evaluate different technical solutions.
  • plan and use appropriate methods to perform tasks within given constraints.
  • critically and systematically use knowledge to model, simulate, predict and evaluate events on the basis of relevant information.
  • within the framework of the project be able to identify issues regarding the role of technology in society, such as environmental and ethical aspects.
  • orally and in writing explain and discuss information, problems and solutions.
The learning objectives for a Degree project are based on the objectives for a Bachelor of Science formulated in Chalmers local Guidelines for Examinations (Dnr C2007/723).

The overall goal of the Degree project is that the student shall demonstrate the knowledge and ability that is required to work independently as an engineer.

Content

See "Föreskrifter för examensarbete vid högskoleingenjörsprogram vid Chalmers tekniska högskola" (Dnr C2010/743).

Organisation

The work is preferably carried out in groups of two students but it can also be performed individually. For further information, see "Föreskrifter för examensarbete vid högskoleingenjörsprogram vid Chalmers tekniska högskola" (Dnr C2010/743).
