Learning methods

The learning process of the course contains two traces. The first is a general method of teaching track (mainly based on lectures), that all the students participate in. The other is individually adapted supervision. The bachelor thesis is normally written in groups of two students and each group is assigned a supervisor from the section. To keep together the groups, continuous work seminars are furthermore arranged, where the groups read and discuss one another's draft.

Work placement

No work placement is included in the planned learning activities. BTH is aiming for a close contact with the surrounding community when developing courses and programmes.

Planned learning activities

Time allocation

On average, a student should study 400 hours to reach the learning outcomes. This time includes all the various available learning activities (lectures, self studies, examinations, etc.). This estimation is based on the fact that one academic year counts as 60 ECTS credits, corresponding to an average student workload of 1 600 hours. This may vary individually.
