Learning objectives and syllabus

Learning objectives:

The learning objectives for a thesis are based on the objectives for Master of Science in Engineering/ Architecture/Master of Science degrees formulated in Chalmers' local Master's degree procedures. (Diarienummer: C2007/723).
Specific learning objectives that are to be fulfilled in the master's thesis are that the student should be able to:

  • in their project use essential in-depth knowledge of the major subject/field of study and, in a scientifically correct way, relate to current research and development work;
  • choose and state one's reasons for selecting their project method with respect to the major subject/field of study;
  • contribute to research and development work, and be able to relate their work to relevant scientific or technical/industrial/architectonic contexts;
  • based on a holistic view, critically, independently and creatively identify, formulate and deal with complex issues;
  • plan and, with adequate methods, carry out qualified tasks within the designated framework and also be able to evaluate this work;
  • create, analyse and critically evaluate different technical/architectonic solutions;
  • critically and systematically integrate knowledge;
  • present and discuss their conclusions as well as the knowledge and arguments these are based upon both in spoken and written English;
  • within the framework for the specific project, identify which issues need to be addressed for relevant societal, ethical and ecological factors to be observed, and
  • observe and discuss ethical aspects of research and development work, both pertaining to how the work is carried out as well as what it explores/develops;
  • identify and discuss needs for further elucidation of different project aspects before decision-making or project realisation, when relevant

Upon completion of the degree work, the student shall have demonstrated such knowledge and ability as are required to work independently as a Master of Architecture/Master of Science in Engineering/ Master of Science.
