The student should acquire skills in the project work with chemical problems.


Students who are admitted to study programmes at UiO must each semester register which courses and exams they wish to sign up for in Studentweb.

If you are not already enrolled as a student at UiO, please see our information about admission requirements and procedures.

Overlapping courses

The course overlaps 2.5 credits against KJ133 and 5 credits against KJ143 / KJ243.


Lectures (23 hours), seminars (32 hours), and a compulsory laboratory course of 25 hours (5 exercises). A compulsory project task is dimensioned to 50 hours. 70% of the compulsory exercises have to be approved, and together with pass in the laboratory course and the project task, these are prerequisites for admittance to the final exam.


A mid-term exam with letter score, makes up 20% of the final score. Written exam at the end of the semester (3 hours), makes up 80% of the final score. Letter score.


The laboratory course is valid in 5 semesters after it was taken.
