Information for Project Students

If you are considering one of our projects within LMIS1, please get in contact with us as soon as possible, usually a few weeks in advance of the start of the semester. The projects can be taken very quickly, and we highly recommend you to show interest to us immediately. Contained here are guidelines in helping you complete semester/master project in our group.

  • Before the start of the semester; you should decide your project, have a discussion with the responsible assistant and thereafter inform Prof. Brugger (email with: title of the project and name of assistant).
  • Two weeks after the beginning: detailed work plan and objectives have been established & short introduction presentation of the project.
  • Mid-semester: report on the status of the project (1 page).
  • End-of-semester: final presentation (30 minutes, graded) and then submission of report.
