Annex 2

For a Master of Science in Engineering the student shall have demonstrated the knowledge and skills required to work autonomously as a graduate engineer.

Knowledge and understanding
For a Master of Science in Engineering the student shall have:
    * demonstrated knowledge of the disciplinary foundation of and best practice in his or her chosen field of technology as well as insight into current research and development work, and
    * demonstrated both broad knowledge of his or her chosen field of technology, including knowledge of mathematics and the natural sciences, as well as a considerable degree of specialised knowledge in certain areas of the field.

Competence and skills
For a Master of Science in Engineering the student shall have:
    * demonstrated the ability to identify, formulate and deal with complex issues autonomously and critically and with a holistic approach and also to participate in research and development work and so contribute to the formation of knowledge
    * demonstrated the ability to create, analyse and critically evaluate various technological solutions
    * demonstrated the ability to plan and use appropriate methods to undertake advanced tasks within predetermined parameters
    * demonstrated the ability to integrate knowledge critically and systematically as well as the ability to model, simulate, predict and evaluate sequences of events even with limited information
    * demonstrated the ability to develop and design products, processes and systems while taking into account the circumstances and needs of individuals and the targets for economically, socially and ecologically sustainable development set by the community
    * demonstrated the capacity for teamwork and collaboration with various constellations, and
    * demonstrated the ability to present his or her conclusions and the knowledge and arguments on which they are based in speech and writing to different audiences in both national and international contexts.

Judgement and approach
For a Master of Science in Engineering the student shall have:
    * demonstrated the ability to make assessments informed by relevant disciplinary, social and ethical aspects as well as awareness of ethical aspects of research and development work
    * demonstrated insight into the possibilities and limitations of technology, its role in society and the responsibility of the individual for how it is used, including both social and economic aspects and also environmental and occupational health and safety considerations, and
    * demonstrated the ability to identify the need for further knowledge and undertake ongoing development of his or her skills.
