How courses and project work are evaluated at AAU


All courses given belong to either of the two categories:

  • Study Programme Course (in Danish: StudieEnhedskurser/SE-kurser)
  • Project Theme Course (in Danish: ProjektEnhedskurser/PE-kurser)

SE courses

The Study Programme Courses are abbreviated "SE-courses". The subjects in the SE-courses are general matematics and engineering sciences. The SE-courses may be evaluated by traditional written or oral tests at the end of the course or by a continuous evaluation. The evaluation results in passed or not-passed.

PE courses

The Project Theme Courses are abbreviated "PE-courses". The PE-courses are planned according to the Project Theme, and should support the current projects, i.e. they will typically be more application specific than SE-courses. There will be no separate tests or evaluation at the end of the course, but the comprehension of the contents is assessed in the examination of the projects.

Project work [Text must be revised]

The project work is examinated in an oral examination. The project group (5-7 persons) will start the examination with an oral presentation of the project in maximum one hour. After that the supervisor and a censor will ask questions to each of the students. Students will be graded individually according to the 00-13 marking scale.
