Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)

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.


      This course provides the master students with an opportunity to solve a development task within a project organization in one of the following areas: automation, control or mechatronics. In order for students to manage this task lectures in projects-as-a-working-method and project-management will be given, as well as lectures in writing and presenting project plans and results. The actual project work involves carrying out a pre-study, creating a project plan and then presenting it both in writing and as an oral presentation. The work also involves carrying out the planned project, and presenting the results in a written report as well as an oral presentation.


      The course is organized in the following way:
      1. Pre-study of the project problem. Creation of a project plan.
      2. Lectures on working within a project environment and on project management
      3. Lectures on how to report work within the project, both orally and in writing.
      4. Presentation of project pre-study in the form of a written report and at a seminar
      5. Implementing, testing, and validating a solution
      6. Presenting the result in a written report and at a seminar.


      Not decided yet.


      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.
