In the project paper the student should display an ability to apply and compile knowledge and skills acquired on various central and qualified courses of the relevant educational programme. Through the project the student should demonstrate an ability to identify, analyse and solve a technical or scientific problem and evaluate the solution, and to present and document the result. The project should be an in-depth study of a topic, showing that the student can apply the methods of science and engineering.

The paper should be the result of independent work, carried out individually or in a group of two. If the paper is produced jointly there should be a clear statement of who contributed what. The paper should be written on one of the topics stated in the study programme syllabus unless the education committee permits an exception in individual cases.

A pass on the project is compulsory if a student it to obtain a degree in engineering.


The work on the project includes:

• A written report in Swedish or English with a summary in English
• A separate summary which may be popular in character or take the form of a scientific article
• A presentation at a public seminar at LTH
• Acting as opponent at a seminar where another student’s paper is presented

All of the above points must be approved if the project is to receive a pass grade.

The report should be available in a version for examination at least one week before the seminar. The department takes responsibility for producing the required number of copies of the report. It is desirable but not compulsory that the report should be scrutinized by another project candidate at the seminar. The same report can be scrutinized by more than one candidate. The seminar may be scheduled outside term time if the student, supervisor and examiner are in agreement.

The report is public and no part of it may be kept confidential. The examiner may not take into account any confidential information when assessing the report. The department must file the report.


For each project topic the head of department appoints one or more teachers with research training at Lund University as examiner. This means, among other things, that the project is to be examined at Lund University even in the case of exchange students. The examiner decides the grade to be awarded to the paper. Before work on the project begins, the examiner must approve the choice of topic and appoint a supervisor to provide the candidate with continuous supervision. The aim of the supervision includes making it possible to complete the project within 20 weeks of full-time study. The student cannot expect supervision for more than 15 months. The examiner may appoint as supervisor anyone deemed suitable.

The supervisor need not be a teacher at LTH. No one may act as examiner on a paper which he or she has supervised.

The grades awarded are either pass or fail.


Please contact your supervisor for a possible workplace.

The degree project is worth 30 hp (higher education credits).


Work on the project may begin when the student has at least 140 credits which may count towards the degree. Dispensation from this can only be granted by the education committee and only if there are special grounds.

To be allowed to start work on the project the student should also have acquired sufficient knowledge in the subject field of the project. It is up to the examiner to determine whether this requirement has been met before the work begins.

Candidates should register for the project at the student office before starting work on it. The student office should check that the requirement for commencing the work have been fulfilled.
