The goal of the R&D Project course is to integrate the working skills of academically educated experts into actual projects in working life. The purpose is to focus on what people expect from a graduate from the Information Processing Science degree programme in actual research and development projects. During the course, the students learn how to work as a versatile professional in the industry. The course is useful for those who are interested in an academic career and those who plan to work as an expert in an organisation and produce information to beused in projects and elsewhere with systematic, academic methods. Students attending the R&D Project course are expected to have such project management skills that the project team will be able to participate in the determination of the project goals and further specify the goals during the project period to use the project’s resources in a manner that benefits the client as effectively as possible. The projects are specimens of the students’ project management skills, and the assignments vary a great deal: research projects, surveys, design projects, implementation projects and assessment assignments.
The next course will start in early January. If you are interested in offering an assignment for the project, please fill in the form (see the link bellow) and/or contact the responsible person (tonja.molin-juustila[at]oulu.fi). Make your contact as soon as possible and at the latest by 1st December. Later, it is still possible to edit your assignment, yet the final assignments must be submitted by 15 December.
