EX0724 Degree Project in Energy Systems Engineering, 30.0 CreditsExamensarbete i energisystem
Education cycleMaster’s level
Advanced study in the main fieldSecond cycle, includes independent project (degree project) for the degree of Master of Science (120 credits)(A2E)
Prior knowledge240 credits within the Master Programme in Energy Systems Engineering
ObjectivesThe aim of the degree project is to prepare the student to work as an engineer mastering a clear scientific as well as an engineering approach and methodology.
On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- identify and formulate technical problems
- independently plan and carry out an assignment within given time frames by employing scientific and engineering approaches and methodologies
- search, compile and use relevant literature
- demonstrate advanced knowledge in a specific sub-area within the field of the program
- present and discuss the results in a clear and correct language both orally and in writing to different target groups
- provide constructive criticism on others’ reports.
ContentIn the degree project the student should treat and present a specific assignment. The task should be relevant to the engineering programme that the student is to graduate from. The assignment should be chosen so that knowledge from earlier courses is applied in addition to its broadening and deepening by acquiring new knowledge necessary to carry out the work. The assignment should be possible to solve and present within the given time frame.
To achieve the goals, the student should
- independently, but under supervision, define a technical problem, study it, interpret and evaluate the results as well as present the work orally and in writing
- search, evaluate and compile information relevant to the chosen problem
- participate actively in seminars and, if possible, in other activities where the work is carried out
- comment and, in writing and orally, provide constructive criticism (in a public debate) to other students’ reports and oral presentations.
Formats and requirements for examinationApproved oral and written presentation of the degree project (further information under Additional Information). Oral and written opposition on another degree project (normally within the same programme), or equivalent (defined by the examiner).
- If the student fails a test, the examiner may give the student a supplementary assignment, provided this is possible and there is reason to do so.
- If the student has been granted special educational support because of a disability, the examiner has the right to offer the student an adapted test, or provide an alternative assessment.
- If changes are made to this course syllabus, or if the course is closed, SLU shall decide on transitional rules for examination of students admitted under this syllabus but who have not yet passed the course.
- For the examination of a degree project (independent project), the examiner may also allow the student to add supplemental information after the deadline. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.
- The right to take part in teaching and/or supervision only applies to the course date to which the student has been admitted and registered on.
- If there are special reasons, the student may take part in course components that require compulsory attendance at a later date. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.
Additional informationGuidelines for the degree project are available at www.teknat.uu.se/
The written report will plagiarism reviewed, and published within SLU’s system for electronic publishing (Epsilon).
The right to participate in teaching and/or guidance applies only to the course that the student has been accepted to and enrolled in.
If there are special reasons, the student has the right to participate in the compulsory attendance part at a later course. More information is available in the education rules and directives of the University.
