General aim: To obtain in-depth knowledge of a specialized subject in the area of Biomechanical engineering. The purpose is to improve specific knowledge or expertise related to the subject of the master thesis, which is not directly part of the curriculum. For example, an in depth study of the anatomy, physiology and neurology of the head-neck system in case the student is going to work on car crash experiments or modeling.
Learning objectives could be:
- Give an in-depth description of a specific topic in the research area
- Independently analyse a complex problem in the research area
- Evaluate solutions and select the best solution to a related problem
- Report and present about the problem solving process
This course covers individual learning assignments and activities within the field of specialization. The course is not scheduled in the time tables of the programme. About the content and the study load, the student requires written approval (e-mail) of the supervisor on beforehand. Aim: to obtain in-depth knowledge of a specialized subject in the area of Biomechanical engineering. The final qualification is that the student is able to explore alternatives and answers to a specific research question and to discuss their validity, limitations and/or relevance for application in a specific context. The content is case specific. The answers to the research question may be found by literature study, by simple experiments, by (numerical) analysis and modeling or a combination of these.
