The student is able to:|
a) Explain and use the steps in the research methodology, formulate a scientific research question, design, construct and execute a scientific experiment and discuss the experimental results in relation to model predictions.
b) Report in an academic manner both written and oral.
c) Work effectively in a group, demonstrate cooperation skills.
This module contains a project with a study load of about 3 EC. The project is not supposed to be an illustration of the subjects of the other parts, but rather an integration and a means to learn the various subjects (i.e. project lead learning (PLL)). |
In the project students will choose a research question related to a relevant dynamical system from a list of in total 15 descriptions. They all are related to the Mechanics and Calculus 1 parts of the module, but go much deeper than, e.g., the drills but also the week problems. The project starts with a problem analysis, contains a (mathematical) modelling step and the final answer obtained by solving this mathematical model must also be validated by an experiment.
