Prior knowledgeCourses corresponding to 60 hp in Horticultural Science or Biology plus 15 hp Business Administration
ObjectivesThe course is intended to provide students with insights into methods that can be used for working with problems and will provide training in planning, carrying out and reporting a project. It will also provide students with the opportunity to apply, deepen and broaden their knowledge from previous studies. Through collaboration with a business, students will gain a greater insight into relevant issues in the horticultural industry.
On completion of the course, students will be able to:
- describe some of the methods that can be used to work on issues and problems relevant for the horticultural industry
- plan, carry out and report a project and orally present their work in a form adapted to the target group
- work on new issues and discuss and assess alternative solutions using knowledge from previous studies, in combination with location, analysis and summation of information in the relevant area.
ContentProject methodology and communication tools for stakeholder participation are introduced in the form lectures, seminars and course literature. The majority of the course consists of independent work on student projects, individually or in groups with individual in-depth analyses. The project must be decided in consultation with the examiner and supervisor at SLU. The work will be carried out in collaboration with a host company and must result in a written report, which must also include a review of relevant scientific literature.
Formats and requirements for examinationThe examination consists of written and oral presentation of the project. To pass the course, approved written and oral presentation of the project and approved participation in compulsory components is required.
- 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.
