• Discuss the subject matter of the project specified within the area of the study programme
• Solve complex problems using theory and concepts within
• Evaluate and choose among potentially relevant theories, concepts and methodologies applied to solve problem within physics.
• Evaluate the relevance and limitations of the theories, concepts, methods and tools actually applied in the project
• Account for any choices made during the problem analysis and solution development
• Develop solution alternatives and evaluate the consequences of solution alternatives and make a well-informed choice based on that
• Plan, execute and report an extensive individual research project within an agreed time frame
• Write a well-structured project report, which meets all the usual requirements of an academic work, including:
o Empirical background
o Research problem/project objective
o Relevant theory
o Research design:
o Presentation of data
o Presentation and discussion of findings
o Evaluation of the project; i.e., findings, methods and, if relevant, considerations regarding the limitations and generalizability of the study.
o specific for internship: a personal reflection is required, a reflection on: how was it to work alone, full-time in a company, and, if applicable, in a different country with a different culture, language, industrial structure, etc.
• Analyze and solve an actual problem of industrial relevance
through application of systematic research and development
processes, including advanced analytical, experimental, and/or
numerical methods and models
• Work together with an organization and identify problems and finally develop solutions
• Operationalize theoretical contributions in a practical setting
• Compare and critically evaluate the results of the project in relation to existing knowledge and accepted theories within the subject area
• Communicate a balanced view of the results and conclusions of the project in well-organized written and oral presentation
The student is included in the company’s daily work and carry out independent project work on an industrial problem relevant for the company. Concurrent to the work in the company, the student makes a project report, which is evaluated after the ending of the internship.
This is a 30 ECTS project module and the work load is expected to be 900 hours for the student.
The Project-oriented study in an external organization must have a scope that correspond the ECTS load.
