Learning outcome

  • Have an overview over current international litterature, scientific writing and ethical norms for a specific topic and can be critical to different sources of information.
  • Demonstrate an in depth insight and comprehension of a specific topic.

  • Use physics to elucidate and analyse a problem.
  • Have experience of literature search and scientific writing.
  • Be able to present and convey the independent work using the terminology and language of the research area.
  • Be able to describe the assignment in a clear manner and use the language of the field.
  • Can use and analyse relevant tools
  • Be able to discuss, analyse the results and conclusion related to the problem at hand.

General Competence
  • Understand the ethical standards for scientific work
  • Can convey the independent research work
  • Be able to analyse relevant theoretical models or results supported by the research results
  • Be able to reflect and critical assesment of one's own work and
  • Can defend a high ethical behaviour in an academic contex


Through the work with the bachelor's thesis, the student will get experience with a research project where methods in physics is used. The student will carry out a litterature review, practical work, report writing. The methods will depent upon the specific assignment. Choice of project topic subject to availability of suitable supervisers.

Required prerequisite knowledge

The student must have completed 40 ECTS credits in physics within the educational plan.
