External examiners and confidentiality

The course description specifies whether a course is assessed by an external examiner or as an internal examination. Final projects are always assessed by an external examiner.

All external examiners used at DTU must be members of the nationwide engineering examiner corps (www.censornet.dk).

The external examiners' activities are covered by the Public Administration Act, including the provisions on disqualification and secrecy.

Projects which, entirely or partially, are carried out with private companies, may, taking into account any information about trade secrets, know-how etc., be treated as confidential, which means that the oral presentation will not be open to the public. It may be agreed upon that the report must not be made publicly available.
