Project based and research based study environment 

You become part of a project based and problem based study environment where you work in project groups. You and your fellow students are responsible for planning and carrying out the project – and for meeting the deadlines. Usually we receive the project outlines from companies and we emphasise that the problems you solve are ‘real-world’ problems. 
The last semester is devoted to the master thesis, which will typically be carried out at or in cooperation with an industrial company.
