The University of Agder wants to collaborate with GCE NODE companies to run student projects for bachelor students in renewable energy engineering.

60 students from the university’s Faculty of Engineering and Science will soon start to work on their bachelor’s thesis in renewable energy – on their own or in groups.

The university encourages students to take on external projects, to get a real-life experience from their project work and to meet other people than university employees.

Many of the students have electrical engineering as a main interest, while others have specialized in heat energy.

A student project represents free labor for a company, a good change of solving a problem, an external look at the company and a thorough screening of potential employees. The bachelor’s thesis is independent work undertaken by the student under the guidance of academic staff. However, companies will always be asked to contribute something.

The University of Agder will introduce the different projects to their students on 15 November. If companies wish to present projects directly to the students, they are welcome to. Feel free to let them know about this when you submit the assignment. And don’t forget to mention if the assignment is intended for more than one student.

The description of the thesis must be defined and contain the following information:

  • Working title
  • Motivation (why the work is of interest)
  • Goals and sub-goals
  • Important prerequisites and limitations
  • Previous work that the project will be based on
  • Expected results
  • Delivery (e.g. if the project is to result in more than one report, for example a computer program, a prototype, machine drawings, user manuals and so on)

Companies can send their bachelor thesis to:
