  • Structure and content

    The programme is focused on applied skills and project management

    A typical exchange student programme consists of 3-4 courses and a project course giving a total of 30 ECTS points per semester. All of our courses are described in detail in the above mentioned curriculum.

    Project work 

    All exchange students carry out a project. Project work is a way of incorporating real-life challenges into study programmes. You will typically be working in teams of three to five where you gather data, analyse and solve a problem, most of the time in cooperation with a company.


    The timetables are very dynamic, varying from semester to semester. Typically, a timetable will have one day free of lectures. During the semester, a course will have approx. 48 lectures (4 lectures a week). Three full weeks at the end of each semester are assigned to project work.

    Evaluation and exams 

    All subjects will be examined either during the course of study or at the end of the semester. Exams are both oral and written. Your performance will be assessed in several subjects by an examiner and a co-examiner, either external or internal.
