The degree project involves

The degree project is an independent project. It is to be executed individually or in groups of two. If the degree project is carried out as a group, the contribution of each student must be clearly discernible.

The report is to be made available in a form suitable for examination at least two weeks before the seminar. The department is responsible for providing the requisite number of copies of the report. The seminar can be timetabled for a day that is not within semester periods if the student, supervisor and examiner are in agreement. It is desirable, but not obligatory, that the report is critically examined by a student also presenting a degree project at the seminar. The same report can be critically examined by several fellow students.
