The module is based on knowledge achieved when studying the 3rd semester on the Master of Science in Energy Engineering with specialisation in Thermal Energy and Process Engineering or similar.
Problem based project organised work. The final project may study new subjects or be an extension of the project work from previous semesters.
The project can be a disciplinary project, a cross disciplinary project or a part of a multi-disciplinary project, where several groups from the department do different parts of a larger project. Finally, the project can also be a part of a so-called MEGA project where several project groups from more departments are participating, each doing their part of the large project to find a total solution.
The subject matter will remain in the area of thermal energy and process engineering. The project may be of theoretical or experimental nature and will often be in collaboration with an industrial company or other research institution performing research in the area of thermal energy and process engineering.
Since it is a 30 ECTS project module, the work load is expected to be 900 hours for the student
