Form(s) of Assessment


Form(s) of Assessment (additional text)

  • The candidate must provide one term paper and a final paper.
  • In the term paper he or she discusses an open research topic assigned by the course responsible, including a thorough critical review of the state of the art, providing his or her own contribution to the field for instance by presenting a limited experimental setup and results and/or by proposing new ideas and promising directions for future research.
  • In the final paper the candidate address a problem related to his or her own PhD thesis work within the field of colour imaging. The final paper should be in the form of a scientific paper, including proposed novel idea(s) supported by thorough discussion, experimental results and analysis, in a close to publishable scientific form.
  • Candidates must pass both parts
