Type of instruction
In this module, the Master’s project is carried out. The module
constitutes independent project work and concludes the programme.
Within the approved topic, the Master’s project must document that
the level for the programme has been attained.
Extent and expected workload
Since it is a 30 ECTS course module the expected workload
is 900 hours for the student.
|Name of exam||Master’s Thesis|
|Type of exam|
Master's thesis/final project
|Assessment||7-point grading scale|
|Type of grading||External examination|
The master thesis can be conducted as a long master thesis using
both the 3rd and 4th semester. If choosing to
do a long master thesis, it has to include experimental work and
has to be approved by the study board. The amount of experimental
work must reflect the allotted ECTS.
