Examn scores

The scores are presented using the 13-scale, except for the external project at DTU 2010, which is evaluated using the 7-scale.

Dansk version

The Danish Engineering Academy 1979 - 1983

The Danish Engineering Academy was located at Lundtofte (northern part of Kongens Lyngby), being part of The Technical University of Denmark, at that time called Danmarks Tekniske Højskole. The education was terminated at the late 1990'ies so a corresponding education is Bachelor of Science from the university. The study was rated to 3 and 1/2 år (7 semestres), but I prolonged the study with 1/2 year to include extra courses.

Comments

The score expresses the work load and this candidate has a total score of 356 points, which is 46 points more than required.

The plan offered 7 theory courses per semester with typically 6 points per course and was subdivided into three courses before lunch (8-12) and training courses (3 points) within the afternoon (13-17) except wednesday, where there were only theory courses. Each course was placed two times within the scheme since the week was divided into 14 theory lessons and 4 practising lessons. The typical work load was 5 courses per semester, and the spare time was used on home work or relaxation. One year was fully loaded with all 7 possible courses, and this was a very hard year. The semester continued with a 3-week period where a concentrated course was executed, so the nominal work load for a semester was 6 theory courses and 4 training courses (approx. 48 points).


The University of Copenhagen 1992 - 1994

The education through Open University was divided between theory lessons at the university located at Klerkegade in the centre of Copenhagen (six saturdays) and home work, which was send to the teacher for correction and shortly after returend with comments. I have selected courses from the basic study but I am far from achieving the Batchelor degree within music; quite some time is required and a number of courses were not available through open university.

Basic courses

  • Musical analysis (1/4 year load) - 7
  • Music history 1 (1/4 year load) - Passed
  • Harmonising (1/8 year load) - Passed
  • Musical arrangement (1/8 year load) - 10

The lessons were excelent and I passed four of five initiated courses. The unfinished course was Piano, which proved too compact, but I passed a sub-examn covering listening and singing exercises. The course Music history 1 was the first of two planned courses. I had an appointment with the teacher to write about "Organs at the time of Bach" but this may be realised at a later time.


The Technical University of Denmark 2004 - 2006

The Master of Science education is an add-on to my existing BSc EE degree. It is called +2 since it lasts for two years, and results in the Danish title of civilingeniør, not to confuse with the english civil engineering, which relates to the contruction of buildings. The education contains four semestres with the former three covering theoretical courses and the latter is the final project.

13-week courses

  • 01246 Partial Differential Equations (10 points) - 9
  • 02601 Numerical algoritms (5 points) - 8
  • 31200 Fundamentals of Acoustics (5 points) - 9
  • 31220 Electroacoustic Transducers (10 points) - 10
  • 31230 Acoustic Communication (10 points) - 10
  • 31236 Auditory Signal Processing (10 points) - 9
  • 31260 Advanced Acoustics (10 points) - 8
  • 31270 Sound & Vibration (10 points) - 10
  • 33251 Semiconductor physics (5 points) - 9

3-week courses

  • 01257 Advanced Modelling (5 points) - 10
  • S31 -- Loudspeaker Crossover Networks (5 points) - 10
  • S31 -- The natural resonance frequencies of an ancient wind instrument (5 points) - 11

Final project

  • Loudspeaker Cabinet Diffraction (30 points) - 10

External project (2010)

  • Room acoustics (5 points) - 12

The study plan was changed 2002 to include 10 courses, with five within the morning (8-12) and five within the afternoon (13-17). The overall plan remains unchanged with a 13-week period with a typical work load of 5 of 10 courses, then examn and after this a 3-week period where one single course is being studied. The teachers decide the balance between theory and practice for each course. The total score is 120 points of which at least 75 points must be within the seleced branch (in this case 95 points within acoustics) and at least 10 points within mathematics (20 points in this case).

The Technical University of Denmark 2010

The study did not include room acoustics so I decided to include this as a self-study project with assistance from one of the teachers at DTU, Jonas Brunskog.
