Experimentation project GMT

Te lang geleden voor docent- en roosterinformatie
Contents:Please note that this course is offered in legacy mode. The experimentation project has been replaced by the Small Project. Only in case that your study plan requires a 7.5 ects project, you are allowed to take this course. Note that a 7.5 ects experimentation project and a literature review can be combined into a Small Project.

The experimentation project is an individual or small group project in game or media technology intended to acquaint you with experimentation for a research purpose or development issues. Its size is 7.5 and it is generally taken at the end of your first year or beginning of your second year. It may be taken at a later time if that logistically fits your program better, but not earlier than the third period of your first year. The 7.5 ECTS variant is done during one period, half-time. The 15 ECTS variant is done during one period full-time, or during two consecutive periods half-time. If the supervisor permits, a project may also be done in the summertime (between periods one and four). The project can be taken within the AGS center, or externally with one of our industrial or research partners.

The goal of the experimentation project is to either (1) answer a research question related to a problem in game or media technology by experimentation, or (2) carrying out and reporting on (part of) a development track related to game and media technology. In the latter case, experimentation (e.g. to optimize the methods you implemented in your development) is also likely to be part of the assignment, and your assignment is more likely to be part of a team effort. In either case, the project is concluded with a written report. Please approach a GMT professor to obtain a project well before your planned starting date.

Literature:There is no fixed literature for this project.
Course form:The project can be done either individually or in a small group (2-3) of students; it is usually done internally with a GMT professor, but may also be done in an external research lab or in a company, in which case a GMT professor is appointed supervisor.
Exam form:A written report and any other deliverables defined a the start of the project.
Minimum effort to qualify for 2nd chance exam:Om aan de aanvullende toets te mogen meedoen moet de oorspronkelijke uitslag minstens 4 zijn.
