  • Purpose and learning objectives

    The bachelor project, together with the internship exam and the other exams in the programme, must document that the programme's goals for learning outcomes have been achieved. The bachelor project must document the student's understanding of and ability to reflect on the practice of the profession as well as their application of theories and methods in relation to a practice-orientated problem. The identified problem, which must be central to the programme and the profession, is formulated by the student, possibly in cooperation with a private or public company. The educational institution must approve the problem statement.

    The problem, which is defined in consultation with the supervisor and, most appropriately, in collaboration with a private or public company or client, must explain the background, focus areas and technical issues that the student intends to work with.

    The examination in the bachelor project involves an oral defence based on the prepared material, either hung on boards or presented digitally.
