Elective system & control courses (18 ECTS to select)

The elective system & control courses has to be chosen in agreement with the MSc-coordinator from a predefined list. This list can be found in the the MSc study guide. More information about the elective courses an be found on Brightspace.

MSc program, second year:

You may only start with your graduation project once you have finished all your obligatory courses and most of your elective courses. It is recommended to closely coordinate the choice of elective courses with the subject of the intended MSc project direction, with the support of the MSc coordinator and your assigned final thesis supervisor.

Choosing a graduation project is a very important decision to make, and you should already begin thinking about it in the first semester of the first year. DCSC handles a procedure to spread the students among the different sections. This procedure is given in the graduation guide.

The graduation project consists of the following projects:

  • SC52000 SC literature assignment(15 EC)
  • SC52045 SC MSc Thesis project (45 EC)

Students who start with their final thesis have to fill in the formal Application form (pdf /word).

Final thesis project market

Every year a final thesis market is organized for students who will start their final thesis project at DCSC in the near future. The idea of the meeting is that staff members, PhD students and other researchers will tell about their research and possible thesis projects, and students will be able to ask questions.
