Departmental Practice 1 is a course, which can be subscribed to in the semester of the ‘MSc Comprehensive Design 1’ course. The requirement is to create an individually understandable piece of work, which is also in connection with and helping the design progress of the Comprehensive Design project. The specific requirements are defined by each department and tutor so that they fit the Comprehensive Design projects, in accordance with the general goals.

The chosen task for the course may be a deeper examination one of the design aspects of the Comprehensive Design project, beyond the requirements of the Comprehensive Design course. It might as well be of an analytical character resulting in a study, or a research-like, scientifically appropriate documentation.

It is possible in the next semester to continue working on the piece started during the Departmental Practice 1, nevertheless, a new type of task/content can be chosen as well.

It is required during both courses to aim for the best result of university level expected to reach during one semester. The material submitted is the result of the students’ individual work and research, with the help of personal consultation with the tutors, in compliance with the relevant parts of the Code of Studies.

1.      Evaluation of the analysis / research during the semester:  We are evaluating the design skills and capability, and the gained competence all together based on the research paper submitted at the end of the semester, which has parts to be submitted during the semester. The piece is presented once during the semester, where we are primarily evaluating the topic and the preparation of the content. In case of a presentation insufficient in quality or quantity, an extra presentation is necessary.

B.      Evaluation of the work during the exam period:

1.      Evaluation of the analysis / research during the exam period: The final result of the semester is to be presented publicly as part of the Comprehensive Design Presentation, the evaluation is oral, and is closed with a mark 1-5.
