Procedure for signing up for the summer courses at DTU Physics

Interested students should contact directly a potential main supervisor, either with own proposals or with proposals chosen from the list at the DTU Physics Project database under "Specialization course".

When an agreement has been made, the student must send an email to the course responsible Christian Danvad Damsgaard, with cc to the main supervisor.

The mail must contain the following: 

  • Name and study number of the student
  • Project title
  • Project period
  • Name and email adresses of main supervisor and co-supervisor. 

The course responsible takes care of the formal signing up of the students to the summer courses.


At the end of the course, a report describing the obtained results is handed in to the main supervisor. The student must present the report for the research group in the form of an oral presentation approximately 20 minutes long. The main supervisor decides together with the co-supervisor if the course is passed or not, and sends the result to the course responsible, who in turns informs the student office about the result.

Main goal

The main goal of the summer courses is to give students the possibility to conduct an independent experimental or theoretical research project at bachelor or masters level, where the result is not known in advance. The research projects are conducted in collaboration with one of the research groups at DTU Physics with the group leader as the main supervisor and typically a PhD student as co-supervisor.
