Learning methods

The teaching consists of lectures, laboratory work and assignments. The purpose of laboratory work and assignments is to further explain the theory and its applications. Thus, these are compulsory and form part of the course. These tasks may be carried out individually or in groups. The teaching language is English.

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 200 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.
