Learning methods

The course is given on campus and includes lectures, tutorials and laboratory exercises. During the lectures and exercises the student go through theories and then apply them in laboratory sessions. The laboratory work is a complement to theoretical lectures to get a practical insight into how theories works. Most theoretical sections have a practical laboratory task associated with the section. At the end of the course, several laboratory exercises are combined into a smaller project. The course may also have individually executed assignments such as submitted-/exercise assignment alternatively examinations where students practice skills to use the course content as a whole as well as to use for the problem formulation relevant solution methods.

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.
