INDIVIDUAL STUDY PLAN

The individual study plan should be a living document, for planning purposes. It must be revised at least annually, in conjunction with a "planeringssamtal" (discussion where the forthcoming research education is planned). The plan should be detailed for the forthcoming year, but can be less detailed for the following years. After each revision a copy of the new version of the plan is signed by the graduate student and the advisor, and the dean (dekanus) approves the updated plan.

The sum of the planned activities are 3.25 years.

1 year is accomplished before start of 1999 due to studies and actual work with research
in the industry since 1993.

The total will be 4.25 year for the complete Ph.D.

Magnus is an industrial PhD student, which means that 50% of his working time he spends at the company. Also his research time is funded by the company.
