Single-Course Danish 10 ECTS

Environmental project work

Overall Course Objectives

To identify and apply research-based technical solutions, to manage strategies for environmental engineering systems and environmental engineering processes, based on the knowledge that has been achieved by the 4th semester,
By the end of the course the student can
1) Identify, define and formulate a relevant environmental engineering problem
2) Perform project work in collaboration with others, and take advantage of and give sparring from/to fellow students and from scientific supervisors
3) Perform relevant information retrieval, and critically compared own data with literature,
4) Communicate the aim and results in writing, graphically and verbally as well as participate in academic discussions

Learning Objectives

  • Work systematically and scientifically within the chosen area
  • Carry out group work under time and logistical constraints
  • Prepare, manage and follow up on a guidance situation with a high yield for the project
  • Set their own learning goals for the project
  • Perform a thorough literature and knowledge search
  • Perform a critical comparison of existing knowledge at a high professional level
  • Presenting information in a precise language both orally and in writing
  • Produce graphs and tables that clearly displays data and desired points
  • Produce a report that accurately and concisely explain the results and discusses these
  • Prepare and present an interesting lecture with clear figures and points
  • Discuss and analyse others’ projects in a group

Course Content

The detailed contents of the projects are defined in collaboration between the students and the supervisor. The subjects may include technical, natural science and social/environmental disciplines.

Recommended prerequisites

At least 4 of the technology core courses shall be passed

Teaching Method

The project is conducted as an interdisciplinary project including searching, processing and evaluation of information within relevant research. Work is conducted in groups of 2-4 students, based on data group themselves together in the field, in the laboratory, interviews, modelling or otherwise, e.g. existing literature. Report writing, literature search, guidance, joint meetings where the groups present for each other and discusses.



The course is only for students in the Bachelor of Environmental Engineering, 4th semester.
