    IDBM Industry Project (Fitech) uses the same evaluation criteria as the "Classic" Industry Project (non-fitech course). The course is 15 ECTS with heavy weightage on the team component, since this is the cornerstone of the program’s identity. In this course, Individual- Team- Community learning is applied.

    70% of the overall evaluation is team-based.

    30% of the evaluation is individual-based, including individual reflections and participation.

    Participation is evaluated based on active workshop participation during the course. Organizing and executing of the final event is evaluated as part of participation.

    Peer evaluation conducted at the end of the course will also contribute to the final grade (+-1 grade).

    Assessment summarized

    • Project plan and team report 10%
    • Research report 20 %
    • Final report, pitch, and client presentation 40 %
    • Participation 10 %
    • Individual reflections (4) 20 %
