  • Type of instruction and practical application of learning objectives
    Various teaching and working methods are used, including:
    • Traditional classroom-based teaching
    • Group work
    • Individual work
    • Cases
    • Excursions
    • Interdisciplinary project-based teaching
    • Problem-based learning
    • Knowledge-sharing
  • Exam

    The learning outcomes of the exam are identical with the learning outcomes of the subject(s)/modul(es)

    Prerequisites for access to the examination
    When starting a semester, students are automatically registered for the exams held in the course of that semester. It is not possible to withdraw registration for exams or exam attempts on the programme.
    Exam in one or more subjects
    Subject/module is tested standalone
    Type of exam
    Combined written and oral examination
    Second-semester synopsis exam:
    The synopsis exam is an individual exam.
    At the beginning of the synopsis project period, two to three problem-oriented topics of relevance to the specialisation are distributed.
    Students choose one of the three topics. The selected topic is examined and analysed using the methods and theory taught on the second semester, leading to the preparation of a synopsis and an oral presentation, where product solutions are presented.

    Third-semester portfolio exam:
    The exam is taken individually.
    The exam is a portfolio exam, where the portfolio to be uploaded must contain the following:
    • A presentation of all third-semester module assignments
    • An independent reflection on the progression of the student’s learning within his or her line of specialisation of no more than 7,200 characters with spaces
    • A CV
    Students choose one of the module assignments done within their field of specialisation to be the main focus of the oral presentation.

    At the oral exam, students must present their portfolios.
    The oral exam takes 30 minutes, including:
    • 10 minutes for the student’s presentation
    • 10 minutes for questions from the examiner and the external examiner
    • 10 minutes for assessment and grading
    Individual exam or group exam
