Being a project in the final year both quantity and especially the quality has to reflect final year high standards.

Topics

Primarily the study projects should be based on a problem oriented project model within a certain theme and are carried out according to the guidelines in “Framework for Projects”. The projects should be made in groups. Maximum 4 students in a group. VIA will provide the necessary supervision assistance and is to be acknowledged as the recipient of the projects.  Very often projects are carried out in cooperation with a company, organisation etc.  We recommend very much cooperation with companies and the supervisors will help students to establish contact to relevant companies, but it should be emphasized that VIA cannot guarantee students to be able to find a company interested in collaboration on the project.  The more specific problems chosen to be dealt with/shall be connected to the student’s course background from her/his home university and/or connected with activities undertaken at VIA.
