Pursuant to Act 261 of March 18, 2015 on Universities (the University Act) with subsequent changes, the following curriculum is stipulated. The programme also follows the Joint Programme Regulations and the Examination Policies and Procedures of the Faculty of Engineering and Science.
The Bachelor’s programme is organised in accordance with the Ministry of Higher Education and Science’s Order no. 1328 of November 15, 2016 on Bachelor’s and Master’s Programmes at Universities (the Ministerial Order of the Study Programmes) with subsequent changes and Ministerial Order no. 1062 of June 30, 2016 on University Examinations (the Examination Order). Further reference is made to Ministerial Order no. 110 of January 30, 2017 (the Admission Order) and Ministerial Order no. 114 of February 3, 2015 (the Grading Scale Order) with subsequent changes.
The Bachelor's programme is offered in Esbjerg.
The Bachelor’s programme falls under the Faculty of Engineering and Science, Aalborg University.
The Bachelor’s programme falls under the Study Board of Energy.
The Bachelor's programme is affiliated to the nationwide engineering examiners corps: Ingeniøruddannelsernes landsdækkende censorkorps.
Admission to the Bachelor’s study programme in Applied Industrial Electronics requires an upper secondary education.
According to the Admission Order, the programme’s specific entry requirements are:
English B, Mathematics A, and one of the following pair of requirements:
The Bachelor’s programme entitles the graduate to the designation Bachelor (BSc) i teknisk videnskab (anvendt industriel elektronik). The English designation is: Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Engineering (Applied Industrial Electronics).
The Bachelor’s programme is a 3-year, research-based, full-time study programme. The programme is set to 180 ECTS credits.
The Study Board can approve successfully completed (passed) programme elements from other Bachelor’s programmes in lieu of programme elements in this programme (credit transfer). The Study Board can also approve successfully completed (passed) programme elements from another Danish programme or a programme outside of Denmark at the same level, in lieu of programme elements within this curriculum. Decisions on credit transfer are made by the Study Board based on an academic assessment. See the Joint Programme Regulations for the rules on credit transfer.
In exceptional circumstances, the Study Board study can grant exemption from those parts of the curriculum that are not stipulated by law or ministerial order. Exemption regarding an examination applies to the immediate examination.
The rules for examinations are stated in the Examination Policies and Procedures - published at this website: https://www.studieservice.aau.dk/Studielegalitet/
In the assessment of all written work, regardless of the language it is written in, weight is also given to the student's formulation and spelling ability, in addition to the academic content. Orthographic and grammatical correctness as well as stylistic proficiency are taken as a basis for the evaluation of language performance. Language performance must always be included as an independent dimension of the total evaluation. However, no examination can be assessed as ‘Pass’ on the basis of good language performance alone; similarly, an examination normally cannot be assessed as ‘Fail’ on the basis of poor language performance alone.
The Study Board can grant exemption from this in special cases (e.g., dyslexia or a native language other than Danish).
The Bachelor’s project must include an English summary (or another foreign language: French, Spanish or German upon approval by the Study Board). If the project is written in English, the summary must be in Danish (The Study Board can grant exemption from this). The summary must be at least 1 page and not more than 2 pages (this is not included in any fixed minimum and maximum number of pages per student). The summary is included in the evaluation of the project as a whole.
It is assumed that the student can read academic texts in his or her native language as well as in English and use reference works etc. in relevant languages.
The following competence profile will appear on the diploma:
A graduate of the Bachelor's programme has competencies acquired through an educational programme that has taken place in a research environment.
A graduate of the Bachelor's programme has fundamental knowledge of and insight into his/her subject's methods and scientific foundation. These properties qualify the graduate of the Bachelor’s programme for further education in a relevant Master’s programme as well as for employment on the basis of the educational programme
The graduate of the Bachelor’s programme has the following qualifications:
The Bachelor's programme is structured in modules and organised as a problem based study. A module is a programme element or a group of programme elements which aims to give students a set of professional skills within a fixed time frame specified in ECTS credits and concluding with one or more examinations within specific exam periods. Examinations are defined in the curriculum.
The Bachelor's programme is based on a combination of academic, problem oriented and interdisciplinary approaches and organised based on the following types of instruction that combine skills and reflection:
Rules concerning the Completion of the Bachelor’s Programme
The Bachelor's degree must be completed within six years after its commencement.
Rules concerning the Progress of the Bachelor’s Programme
The student must participate in all first year examinations by the end of the first year of study in the Bachelor's programme, in order to be able to continue the programme. The first year of study must be passed by the end of the second year of study, in order that the student can continue his/her Bachelor's programme.
In special cases, however, there may be exemption from the above if the student has been on a leave of absence. Leave is granted during first year of study only in the event of maternity, adoption, military service, UN service or where there are exeptional circumstances.
All modules are assessed through individual grading according to the 7-point grading scale or Passed/Not passed. All modules are assessed by external assessment (an external examiner) or by internal assessment (an additional examiner or no additional examiner).
