The course objective is to ensure that students become acquainted with problems from the field of practice through two short projects, which require the development of non-trivial methods, concepts and solutions. After this course, students should be able to:

  • Transform a roughly outlined problem into a carefully defined research question, supported by some level of reading up on the topic.
  • Establish a feasible project schedule for answering the question.
  • Conduct autonomous research to answer the question at hand, using literature searches, studying, experimentation and/or the development of software and hardware.
  • Present solutions to a diverse audience (experts as well as non-experts).
  • Defend solutions in debates.
  • Provide an appropriate report/paper.


In this one month the students will work alone or in teams of two on a project within the field of Forensics from a System and Network Engineering perspective. Where possible the project will be initiated by an external party to assure real life problems. Projects can also be internally performed within one of the research groups associated with the SNE.
