Studieperiodens (kursens) lärandemål
The main objective is to train students from different countries and different disciplines to work together in multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary groups. The students work together to execute an integrated engineering, design and business project, focusing on:
• The development of personal competences, especially the ability to work and communicate within cross-cultural groups.
• The interrelated work of several disciplines like mechanical & electrical engineering, information technology, business & management, etc.
Two years of Engineering studies.
Studieperiodens (kursens) innehåll
A project performed by a multi-national, multi-disciplinary team of 3 to 6 students. This is the main content of the semester. In the beginning of the semester, the available projects are presented after which the students are given the opportunity to give their preferences for which project they want to participate in. The students are then divided into teams in the beginning of the semester based on their own preferences, major studies, and nationality. The aim is to have a good mix of both nationalities and competences in each team.
The EPS-projects at Novia UAS are typically in the fields of renewable energy, energy saving, robotics and “cleantec” but other topics can occur. The students should note that the aim in EPS is not only to have multidisciplinary teams, but also multidisciplinary projects. This means that one project typically requires different competencies.
