The degree project is an independent project. It is to be executed individually or in groups of two.

The degree project comprises:

The document describing the goals of the degree project is to be written at an early stage and must be approved by all supervisors and the examiner. It is to include a description of the problem to solve. The document is also to include a general description of the approach, choice of method, resource requirements and time needed.

The written report is to describe the degree project and its findings. 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 one week before the seminar, which is to be timetabled at some point between 15 August and the Monday of Midsummer week with the exception of the period 22 December - 6 January.

The oral critical review is to be based on a fellow student's written report when it is presented at a public seminar. The author's degree project should be at the same level or higher. One degree project can be reviewed by more than one student.
