Diploma work and applied work

Projects for degrees and research in physics

The diploma work in physics, at barchelor's or master's level is an individual project that you do in a research group. You will get the opportunity to enter deeply into a subject that you are interested in, and get valuable experience of working with researchers.

The degree project at bachelor’s level is offered as a 15 credits course given two times a year.

At master's level, you do a 30 or 60 credits degree project in a research group. The master's degree project is probably the most important course of your studies, and is often the first step to your future career.

At the end of a degree project you write a scientific report. You also give an oral presentation.

The course in short

The student chooses, in consultation with the supervisor and examiner, an independent degree project corresponding to 15 credits. The project can be experimental or theoretical. The project can either be linked to current scientific projects at the department or to problems within the subject area at companies or other departments within or outside the university. If the project is carried out outside the department, there also has to be a supervisor from the department. Proposals on degree projects are, for example, posted on the website of the department,
