ITS-EASY courses

The course curriculum of ITS-EASY include courses in the following categories:
  • Research methodology and professional/innovation-related courses:
    These courses will provide students with knowledge in research methodology, the purpose and goals of the research, the professional and research ethical aspects, relation between research and development, and finally utilisation of the research – innovation and technology transfer.
  • Research subject-related courses:
    These courses will either be improvements of existing courses, or new courses according to the research trends and activities at MDH, and needs of the industrial partners and covering the ITS-EASY research directions.

To register to a course, contact the person responsible for the course. It is expected that the PhD-students will obtain between 75 and 90 credits (hp) in total, according to the requirements from the university, which corresponds to up to one-and-a half year of coursework. A preliminary list of the courses offered is presented in the table below. This list is under constant development, and new courses will be added.
