Each project will we conducted by one student and presented during the seminar. Supervision/feedback from the project supervisors will be given at three distinct appointments.**Supervision of Project Work**

- The first appointment is intended to clarify the tasks related to the study topic. The student is expected to be prepared in the sense that he/she has read the project portfolio or started the programming tasks and may have particular questions.
- The second appointment is intended to solve particular issues regarding e.g. the programming tasks, if any have arisen, or if the student is stuck. The student presents his/her achievements up to this time point and discusses ways to present the work and obtains feedback.
- The last appointment in intended to review the results and to abtain feedback from the supervisors regarding the presentation of the topic.
