There are no lectures or common exercises in this course. Instead, most of the work will be carried out individually by the students. There will be a group meeting each week where you can discuss things with the supervisors and your classmates. At some of these meetings, there may be "customers" who would like to hear about the progress of the project. A customer could be the owner of the data/project or a course supervisor playing the role of a customer. This project development model lets the students get aquainted with a potential future work environment. A short report of current work is to be prepared each week. Towards the end of the course the students are asked to prepare a poster for the MATLS conference.
The course is given over 13 weeks during the spring semester. It is open both for regular DTU students and for everyone else via Open University. DTU students should sign up using CampusNet. For information on how to apply via Open University, see this link.
