Semester project 4 (SE-)





Offered by

Supply Engineering




Main purpose

​Renovation of existing infrastructure and planning of necessary diversion of traffic, water, wastewater and district heating. An interdisciplinary coordination of the works has to be arranged between climate and supply engineers and civil engineers.

The purpose of the PBL part of the course is to promote the students' competencies in cross-professional collaboration.


​The student is expected to achieve an understanding of other engineering capabilities during the completion of the project. The student must achieve knowledge and skills to plan and design renovation of infrastructure in urban areas.


The student must achieve skills to:
- Use a digital platform for collaboration in work groups
- Demonstrate an understanding for the complexity of an infrastructure renovation project.
- Demonstrate the ability to communicate project results to the project owner.
- Analyse and use data of many different kinds, related to the project.
- Understand different forms of communication and act accordingly.
- Give an account of the ethical considerations in the project work.
- Reflect on the efficiency of knowledge sharing in the project group and the quality of the project work.

PBL Skills Learning Objectives
- Apply academic and technical writing style, report structure and plagiarism rules.


Upon finalising the project the student must have achieved the following competencies:
- Use a digital platform for collaboration
- Demonstrate an understanding of the complexity of an urban infrastructure renovation project
- Demonstrate the ability to communicate project results to the project owner.
- Analyse and use data of many different kinds, related to the project.

​PBL Competency Learning Objectives 
- Plan, structure and execute effective interdisciplinary collaboration. 
- Reflect on knowledge sharing in the project group and with other groups. 
- Communicate and argue for the results of the project work and the project group's learning process in a structured way using academic concepts, both in writing, graphically, and orally. 
- Argue for the choice of sources, methods and solutions based on a critical assessment. 
- Explain ethical considerations in the project work.​


Teaching methods and study activities

​The project period is 15 weeks, of which the first 12 weeks are simultaneous with scheduled lectures and classes. The last 3 weeks are reserved for full time project work.
The work load is equivalent to 275 hours.




Exam prerequisites:

Type of exam:
Group exam with individual assessment based on project report and process report submitted before the deadline. Students' individual weighting of academic subjects must be specified in the process report.
Group presentation approx. 20 minutes followed by joint evaluation with joint discussion and individual question rounds for approx. 20 minutes per student including grading.
Individual grades are given on the basis of an overall assessment of the submitted work as well as the individual's presentation during the exam.
External assessment.

Tools allowed

Based on the submitted project, the examiner gives the student guidance on necessary improvements in relation to passing the exam (possibly, that a new project should be prepared). The students are informed about specific deadlines and details of the project work. Project groups are formed if possible. No guidance is provided in the period leading up to submission. There will be no oral defence at the re-examination.

Grading criteria

​Grading based on the Danish 7-point scale.
