Students have to carry out an assignment including a literature survey, of which model development and analysis as well as (vehicle instrumentation and) experimental validation and parameter identification are essential parts. Examples are:
• To improve a chassis design through damper adjustment
• To derive and validate an experimental way to identify and analyze driver control parameters (gains, lead- and lag times, delay time,..)
• to derive and validate an experimental way to identify and analyze  subjects about innovations in power train


The student proposes an improvement to the aforementioned problem and makes an assessment of its viability. To this purpose he applies the proper technique, like prototyping, modeling, analysis or equivalent.
The student collects relevant data, reports on his findings both orally and in writing and he can defend his results.
The student creates a model that reproduces the given problem, thereby showing that he understands the underlying mechanisms of the problem at hand. He can validate the model by generating and/or collecting relevant datasets or he can design and carry out a validation experiment.
The student can communicate and collaborate in an effective way with relevant staff in order to reach his goals.
The student is able to convince the client of his solution by realizing a proof of concept, giving a presentation, writing a paper or otherwise.
The student is able to structure his working process

Dimensions of assessment
- Applying knowledge and understanding (Analyzing and defining problems, Design, Conducting Research)
- Making judgements (Analyzing and defining problems, Design, Conducting Research
- Communication (Managing work processes, Communication and Collaboration)
- Learning skills (Professional development)
