This includes on-going research projects, internships and your own project. This is what some of us have been doing during the Autumn semester, I find this is a good way to get into the swing … Continue reading

Topic Selection Tips

  “An average idea well-executed is much better than a brilliant idea executed badly”—James Hayton Three weeks into the autumn semester and you can feel the difference compared to last years’ first few weeks.

The faculties at Lund almost spill over into the city, you find yourself walking right into various schools and faculties.

Field trip

Study visits have always been my favorite part in the courses. The ability to connect between the theory part and what really happens in the real world, thus comprehend better what you study.

Warm Hearts

Last Friday, we had our farewell dinner as everyone is leaving for the summer break. One year ago, I remember in the registration day when we all first met. The mixed feelings we all had, the excitement about the new experience and the fear of the unknown. With everyone in this picture I share a dear memory to my heart. … Continue reading

How much water in 1kg of beef?

Over recent years you might have come across a typical colourful and intriguing infographic that highlights the concept of a water footprint. You might have been shocked to a single value of 400 litres for a cotton t-shirt or a staggering 15 000 litres for a kilogram of beef.

A Beach visit in Winter

A Swedish beach visit in December might not sound attractive to many students, especially on a Saturday morning. But a chance to see a new Swedish coastal town, good weather and the promise of a barbecue, inspired most of my class to pile on the layers of clothing for a day on the beach. The field trip was part of an elective … Continue reading

So the opportunity to get into the field for some practical work always provides some sense of excitement to an engineering class. Several presentations, group discussions and planning sessions finally led up to 2 full days of practical fieldwork in the Skåne countryside. This group project … Continue reading
