Project and thesis course
During the course, the students are provided with skills and knowledge to outline, implement and report problem-based project work from a) the perspective of sustainability and b) the research orientations of the program, along with c) potential stakeholder aspirations. Students are taught how to capitalize on expert knowledge and mentoring as well as stakeholder information in setting up the tasks and the milestones of a project. The project topics are either based on stakeholder initiatives or derive from the students’ personal interests in carrying out thesis-oriented research within the programme’s thematic scope. The course provides the students with baseline skills for executing a collaborative or an individually composed, project-based thesis upon graduation and for developing their approaches to the conventional thesis format.
