Analysis & Problem formulation


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

This is an English translation of the module.
In case of discrepancy between the translation and the Danish version, the Danish version of the module is valid.

That the student obtains knowledge of problem-oriented project work and can specifically analyse and define a problem within programmes and describe the statement of the problem in a context of application, with an emphasis on either a technical or social context.

The project work focuses on gaining early experience of problem-oriented project work in groups to build competence for the P1 project.

To demonstrate the project work, the project group must:

  • prepare a P0-report, and
  • prepare a P0-process analysis

After delivery of the project report, an experience gathering is held where a number of P0 project groups present their experience of the project group's working process.

The experience gathering forms the basis for each group's process analysis.
