A guide for conducting individual study activities for MSc students

A guide for conducting individual study activities ("project work") for MSc students

(This guide replaces the former guide on "study groups".)

  • a "project work" activity is 5 or 10 ECTS and the number of participants are normally 1-2 master students
  • the activity is supervised by a tenured teacher
  • the participants must beforehand update their master's contracts, so that it includes the project work activity and the contracts must be approved (by contacting Gudmund Frandsen)
  • a "project work" activity must follow the course description for "project work in computer science" / "project work in IT-product development", see the course catalogue
  • in particular the activity is evaluated by the supervisor and an examiner with a 7-scale grade, following a 20 minute oral examination based on a written report about the work carried out.
  • Inform Arne Jensen about the project work (i.e. annual card number(s), project work in either computer science or IT-product development, ECTS and quarter). Ask for a protocol. Fill in, sign the protocol and hand it over to Arne Jensen.
  • Project work activities are not included in the supervisors work load within teaching.

Note: It is very important that the project work activity is incorporated in the study programs of the students. If not there is a risk that the activity does not fit in the total program (ECTS and demands on grades and examiner) and hence the student office can not accept the programme.
