529-0200-10LResearch Project I Information O13 credits16AProfessors
AbstractIn a research project students extend their knowledge in a particular field, get acquainted with the scientific way of working, and learn to work on an actual research topic. Research projects are carried out in a core or optional subject area as chosen by the student.
ObjectiveStudents are accustomed to scientific work and they get to know one specific research field.
