Intended learning outcomes

The course should give the students a perspective on engineering and the future role as an engineer. In specific, the course should introduce basic methods for project work. During the course a project will be performed on a topic of relevance for the Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering programme. After the examination of this course the students should know how to:

  • work in a project according to a project model
  • plan a project work from a given specification
  • make and modify a project plan
  • find knowledge of relevance to solve the project tasks
  • relate basic concepts in physics and electronics to engineering work
  • collaborate to make the work in a project group successful
  • administrate and document an ongoing project work
  • present the results from the project work both orally and in a written report
  • reflect on the finished work and suggest improvements

 

Course content

Lectures - Introductory lecture, CDIO, project descriptions, situating the engineering profession, group dynamics when working together, model for project work at LiTH, communication. Industry related guest lectures. The engineers role as a communicator. Analysis of and adaptation to receivers. Written presentation. Linguistic and formal aspects of technical documents: instructions, reports and descriptions. How to prepare and execute an oral presentation.

  • Project work - Contents according to the specific task (all projects are described in brief on the course webpage). Work according to the project model LIPS. Writing of project plan. Administration and documentation of the ongoing work. Demonstration and presentation of results. Writing of report. Reflections on the finished work.

 

Teaching and working methods

The lectures aim to prepare the students for the project work bringing up topics on project models, group work, written and oral communication and information search as well as to give the students an insight in their future role as engineers by inviting guest lecturers graduated from the Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering programme. The lectures on information search are given for smaller groups at the library.

The project work is done in groups of 5-6 students. The groups are put together by the course management. Each group is assigned to a specific project task and a teacher acting as a customer. The customer presents a specification of the project task to the project group. From this specification the group will make a project plan and perform a project work according to the project model LIPS. Each group has frequent meetings with a teacher acting as a mentor/supervisor. The work is documented in a written report and presented orally to the customer. At the end of the course the work is also presented for the other students at a project conference.
The course runs over the entire autumn semester.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
