Learning outcome
After the course, the candidate should have fundamental and specialised knowledge in the project topic. The candidate should fully understand the fundamentals of the used methods and the many aspects of analysis and interpretation. They should understand and be able to communicate the scientific and / or industrial importance of the project results - on a broader scale than the actual project topic.
Content
The topic will be decided on an individual basis and depends on the field of specialisation of the PhD student. The project topic may be a subfield of one or several of the petroleum engineering disciplines.
Required prerequisite knowledge
Master degree in Petroleum Engineering
Recommended prerequisites
Completed courses at BSc or MSc level including specialisation tools or topics relevant for the PhD project. Alternatively or additionally, first-hand experience with these tools or topics is recommended.

Project work and oral presentation 1/1 Pass - Fail

Folder evaluation with report and performanceThe student has to write a report and give an oral presentation on the same topic. In agreement with the student, the supervisor of the PhD student defines the topic at the beginning of the course. The report may, e. g., be an internal report or a congress abstract. The oral presentation accordingly may be official or unofficial (with or without audience). The decision for this and for the length and structure of the report and for the oral presentation is taken by the supervisor.The final grade will be based on the quality of the report and the oral presentation.
