- Have a conceptual understanding of and be able to calculate surface and line integrals.
- Have a conceptual understanding of and be able to apply Green's-, Divergence- and Stokes' theorems.
- Have a sufficiently deep knowledge and conceptual understanding in vector analysis to handle the topics above, in both known and unknown situations.

There must be an early dialogue between the course coordinator, the student representative and the students. The purpose is feedback from the students for changes and adjustments in the course for the current semester.In addition, a digital course evaluation must be carried out at least every three years. Its purpose is to gather the students experiences with the course.
