Engineering Systems (Scientific Communication)


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The purpose of this module is to make the student able to communicate scientific problems in writing and orally to specialist and non-specialist, based on a selected engineering problem in one of the core topics of the master program. This is obtained by requiring that the student prepare a scientific paper in which he/she formulate and explain scientific hypotheses and results achieved through scientific work. The main contribution and conclusion of the work must then be summarized in a scientific poster and presented orally in terms of a 15 minute conference presentation.

Learning objectives


The student should have knowledge about:

  • The scientific communication processes related to conference presentations and related to publishing in peer-reviewed scientific journals
  • How to organize a scientific publication
  • Details of an engineering problem in one of the core topics of the master program


  • Can explain the process of and criteria for peer reviewed scientific communication
  • Can identify new results from analyzing a selected engineering problem and contextualize these in relation to state of the art in the field
  • Can disseminate the outcome of analyzing a selected engineering problem in the form of a scientific conference/journal, poster and oral presentation


  • Must be able to analyze a selected engineering problem in one of the core topics of the master program to identify new knowledge and/or solutions, and to disseminate the result in scientific form
