External examiners and confidentiality

The course description specifies whether a course is assessed by an external examiner or as an internal examination. An external examiner always assesses final projects.

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

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

Lecturers can find much relevant information on using external examiners at DTU Inside under 'Educational administration'/'Procedures'/'External examination'.

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. Find more information on oral exams at DTU Inside under 'Study rules'/'Exam'/'Forms of examination'. It may be agreed upon that the report must not be publicly available.
