Type of instruction

The project work is carried out as an independent work process in which the students themselves organize and coordinate their workload in collaboration with a supervisor.

The project may be carried out individually or in groups. The project may be finalized with a project report or in the form of a scientific paper with supporting appendices. 

The total workload of the semester has to be equivalent to 30 ECTS. For further information about the organization of the module please see the Joint Programme Regulations.

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 30 ECTS project module the expected workload is 900 hours for the student.
