Application procedureYou apply via OSIRIS Student
Registration using OSIRISYes
Upon completion of this course the student is able to:
  • Formulate, plan and execute a coherent project goal together with teammates from different disciplinary backgrounds,
  • Able to assimilate new material efficiently through self-study and translate it into a concrete application in a team;
  • Implement newly acquired knowledge in a self-built experiment that meets the imposed requirements in relation to relevance, material choices and construction, clarity;
  • Theoretically substantiate the chosen implementation with explicit reference to the other courses in the module and analyze interim results for the adjustment of the project progress;
  • Identify, explain and place in historical context the demonstrated electromagnetic phenomena in a coherent and clear manner
  • Evaluate the realizations of other project groups on the basis of objective criteria and draw up a well-founded ranking;
  • To reflect independently on their own functioning and that of others within the project group.

This course code is only for repeat students who need to re-take the exam from last year.

The core objective of the project is to learn how to establish a clear link between a practical scientific demonstration and an abstract law of physics or concept; and to communicate this in a clear way.

The project aims at the modern and creative realisation/underpinning of and reflection on an experiment in which key concepts from Electricity and Magnetism play a role. The students are divided into groups, who will work on building up an experiment.

The assignment of the group is;
  • To familiarise oneself with the experiment through self-study (the accompanying 'material' is usually only dealt with later in the module);
  • To plan a concrete, modern and feasible realisation of the experiment;
  • To actually realise the planned realisation in a practical way;
  • Substantiate the experiment with explicit reference to the other subjects in the module and, where possible, quantitative analysis of the results;
  • To place the experiment in the historical development of insights into electricity and magnetism and to indicate the relationship between mathematical and physical aspects;
  • To demonstrate the experiment in a clear and attractive way.
