Week for week

No specific weekly time is arranged in advance.

Week 5 (course week 1):  Thursday 1st of February 13:00 - 15:00 (room 424)

Opening motivation presentation by PGL.

Establishment of groups (with two persons in each group) and selection of one of the subjects to explore and examine with a small case study for each group. FOH and PGL will also form a group and this group will take the subject that is not chosen by any of the other groups.

Week 6 (course week 2):  Guest lecturer (Abd-El-Kader Sahraoui)

An open presentation will be given by the guest lecturer on the 8th of February from 15:00 to 16:00 in auditorium 300 and on the 9th of February a special session for this study group is arranged with him from 11:00 to 13:00 in room 424, such that it will be possible to ask questions from an expert in this field.

Each group will work on their own finding material about their subject and work on their case study.

Possibly a guest lecturer from a French professor who is expert in system engineering.

Week 7 (course week 3):

Each group will continue their examination and prepare a presentation for the rest of the study group about their subject and their case study.

Week 8 (course week 4): 

Each group will present their subject (using ppt) and the case study made using the chosen subject. Moved to the next week due to snow.

Week 9 (course week 5): Thursday 29th of February 13:00 - 15:00 (room 424)

Every group write a report in article form about their subject and put it in perspective of the other alternative subjects presented by the other groups.

Week 12 (course week 8): Monday the 19th of March 2007

Each group hand in their article/report (approximately 5 pages of pdf which will be uploaded to the materials wiki) and each student collects the chosen article from one of the two other groups for review. Once the article is uploaded an email is sent to PGL+FOH and the student reviewers. The student reviewers are:

Week 13 (course week 9): Monday the 26th of March 2007 (room 424)

Each group present and defend the article/report (using ppt) and defend it (as a thesis defence) towards one of the other attendees that has read the report and PGL+FOH. Naturally the opponents will have to be prepared for this and have questions prepared, and the student acting as opponent will start the questions after the presentation. Each student must prepare a presentation that last between 15 and 20 minutes. This is followed by 5 to 10 minutes of questions where the student opponent will start asking followed by additional questions by PGL/FOH. Formal approval will be handled by PGL/FOH at the end of each student. It is estimated that half an hour will be used in total per student. The order of the students is here. The assignment of student reviewers to student presenters will be made by PGL in week 12.
