Abstract (Swedish)
This report explores the possibilities of modelling a student at Lund
University Engineering Faculty, and their road to graduation, using the
theory of Markov chains. Different divisions of the populations are tested
to find the best precision while avoiding bias. The appropriateness of
using these models to predict the number of diplomas issued by the
university in the future is also investigated. The simplest model is found
to be the most appropriate, to fully make use of the advantages of the
Markov model.
