Master Curriculum Engineering Physics
Skills to be acquired in this module
As a general objective for the Master Thesis, the student shall demonstrate the ability to constructively, critically and independently formulate, discuss and communicate issues at stake, integrating theory and methodology.
As specific competency objectives within the Master Thesis, after completion the student shall be able to:
- demonstrate knowledge of relevant and latest publications concerning the selected topic
- elaborate the Master Thesis on the basis of clearlyformulated, general objectives and specific characteristics of the topic
- identify and put to use in an operational manner empirical or other scientific material and methods that
are appropriate in relation to the subject
- develop a balanced discussion of material, methods, results and possible consequences of these in relation to the eld of Renewable Energy
- present the Master Thesis orally and defend the results and conclusions in a critical discussion

The module is designed to apply and deepen the methodologies acquainted throughout the program to a specific scientific problem given by the supervisor. In order to achieve a result the student needs to apply scienti c as well as keycompetencies described in the next section.
Students have understood the scientific problem, they have learned the ropes of the problem, they have selected, acquainted or deepened a set of scientific and methodologies and key-competencies necessary to solve the problem and they have applied those methods.
Module contents
The master thesis module finalizes and concludes the master programme. The student presents the achieved results as a written thesis and defends the results / conclusions to a board of examiners.
Within this framework, the students work independently on a current topic from the research areas of the working groups. The work is accompanied by a seminar to presentand review results and the progress of the work intermittently.
