In Denmark, the Higher Technical Examination Programme (HTX, in Danish: Højere Teknisk Eksamen) is a 3-year vocationally oriented general upper secondary program which builds on the 10th-11th form of the Folkeskole. It leads to the higher technical examination, the HTX-examination, which permits a student to qualify for admission to higher education, subject to the special entrance regulations that apply to the individual course. The program gives special attention to scientific, technical and communicative subjects. HTX graduates may study at any Danish technical, scientific or traditional university as well as technical and technological academy (Akademi) or college (professionshøjskole).

From a Danish university, a Master of Engineering is called cand.polyt (lat.: candidatus polytechnices). It is a two-year add-on to an academic 3-year Bachelor in Engineering. At the time when I attended DTU the degree was not split up in both bachelor and master but was instead one long education.

Title of the thesis: "Prediction of protein structural features by use of artificial neural networks"
During my Ph.D. I developed two tools.
NetSurfP is a method which has been implemented as an online prediction server. NetSurfP predicts the surface accessibility and secondary structure of amino acids in an amino acid sequence. The original paper from 2009 can be found here.
In 2019 an improved version of NetSurfP was published, the publication can be found here
