 "We learn to use several different solutions, including analytical and numerical analyses and computer simulations, and we carry ot experiments in the laboratory"

”I wrote my Bachelor's thesis together with three fellow students. We worked with a scale model of a high-voltage mast. The purpose was to test and simulate, through the use of computer programmes, how it reacts in the event of a cable breakdown. It was a very exciting project where we used a lot of the knowledge we had already acquired during lectures, and at the same time we had to think outside the box and learn a lot about other theories in order to solve the problem. 

During the 1st semester of the Master's programme, it becomes clear that the standards have been raised, and the theories are more specific and detailed, which is one of the reasons why I wanted to study to become a Master of Science in Engineering. We learn to use several different solutions, including analytical and numerical analyses and computer simultations, and we carry out experiments in the laboratory. The programme stresses the ability to make constructions using numerical tools and in particular our ability to analyse and evaluate our results."
