The research project will take place in the three blocks of the second semester of the first year of the Master programme. The emphasis in the first two blocks is on exploration and modelling, and in block 6 on implementation and experimenting. The subject of the project will be closely related to the courses in the semester. The research project will be performed in small groups (3 - 5 students). During the project the student will practice team-based research and a range of scientific skills. The project will result in a project presentation, a project report, and possibly a product. At the end of each block, a project presentation will take place. Examination: Project presentation, report, and product.
