Student Research Projects (2022)

The student research projects are designed for students to experience all processes which are involved in doing research on a modern machine learning topic. Students are asked to form a group of five and write a proposal for their own research in one area, which will be evaluated. If the research is granted, the students are expected to work for a time period of roughly nine months involving state-of-the-art machine learning technologies. More information is given through the following presentation which includes all areas, proposal writing instructions and more general information:


The student research project accounts for 15 ECTS (6+9 ECTS) to the students and runs through two terms. Student work in groups of 4-5 with an additional requirement that the group be made up of an internationally diverse members.

Conduct of SRPs

Each year a new round of SRPs are started by the first and second term students. They are introduced to the new topics at the SRP Conference where the students from the previous year, showcase their work. The students are then allowed to form groups of 4-5 members and start meeting with the supervisors to discuss the topics in details. The students who are unable to form groups are offered a Match Making session in January to ensure that no student is without a topic or a supervisor.
