Eligibility:


In order to be eligible for a second cycle course the applicant needs to fulfil the general and specific entry requirements of the programme that owns the course. (If the second cycle course is owned by a first cycle programme, second cycle entry requirements apply.)
Exemption from the eligibility requirement: Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling these requirements.

Course specific prerequisites

Special prerequisites to enter the course: To be admitted into the Master program SYSTEMS, CONTROL AND MECHATRONICS and taken Modelling and simulation ESS101, Discrete event systems SSY165, Linear Control system design SSY285, Embedded control systems SSY190.

Aim

To apply skills acquired in previous courses in order to carry a project through all phases from specification to test and verification.

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

After completing this course, the students should be able to:
  • perform a pre-study and account for important aspects of this task
  • apply fundamental principles of creating a project plan. Describe important elements that have to be incorporated
  • account for fundamental aspects of performing, participating and managing a project
  • seek and acquire information in adequate sources
  • apply a systematic work model, going from specifications to implementation and having experienced such problem solving as part of a team
  • use methods and tools to develop mathematical models of (discrete and continuous) dynamical systems, and be able to critically asses such models
  • in oral presentations and written documentation, describe and motivate their technical solutions in English, to technical as well as non-technical specialists
  • reflect what is expected of them in their professional roles in terms of attitude, ethics, integrity and responsibility
  • reflect on how the project can contribute to sustainable and environmentally friendly system solutions.

      • Organisation

        The course is organized in the following way:
        1. Pre-study of the project problem. Creation of a project plan.
        2. Presentation of project pre-study in the form of a written report and at a seminar
        3. Implementing, testing, and validating a solution
        4. Presenting the result in a written report and at a seminar.

        Literature

        Not decided yet.

        Examination

        Passed pre-study, passed project plan both as written report and as oral presentation, passed project report both written and oral presentation. Each separate part including the carrying out of the project is graded. The marking grades used are fail, 3. 4, and 5. Students should also be present at least 80% of the compulsory elements of the course.
