About the course

The purpose of the course is to give the student an opportunity to choose a specialization subject within their master's education. The specialization project can be carried out individually or in collaboration with fellow students.

Course content

Each student participates in a specialization project which is carried out individually or in collaboration with other students. The subject shall be derived from previous courses of the master's education and aims to provide in-depth competence within the subject area. The content of the project is determined in consultation with the supervisor, examiner and (where applicable) external partners.

The student identifies and defines an interesting subject and plans an in-depth specialization project. The student is responsible for carrying out the project and for documenting and presenting the results in oral and written form. The student must identify and be critical of relevant scientific literature as well as the own results.

The student is expected, in consultation with the supervisor, to identify relevant seminars and other activities, inside or outside the university, in which the student will participate.
