At the end of the first period of his study, the student chooses his or her study programme in consultation with the student advisor of his/her choice:
- prof. dr. ir. L.C. (Linda) van der Gaag (Agents)
- Dr. C.P. (Chris) Janssen (Cognitive Modeling)
- Dr. R. (Rick) Nouwen (Natural Language)
- Dr. R. Iemhoff (Reasoning)
The programme should fit the background and interests of the student and detail all courses the student intends to take; it may always be changed in a later phase after checking with the student advisor. During the first part of the study, the AI programme coordinator (Dr. F.P.M. (Frank) Dignum) and the advisors are the primary contacts for study-related questions and problems. During the final thesis project this role is taken over by the staff member(s) supervising the final project.
