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 emphasize 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. Learn more from the students themselves.
