MSc Introduction week

Research project or additional elective courses

Students can do a short or a long graduation project. The choice should always be discussed with the thesis supervisor.

For a short master thesis project the second year has the following structure:

  • • 5 EC Integration project (Q1)
  • • 10 EC Additional electives (Q1)
  • • 10 EC Literature study (Q2)
  • • 35 EC Master thesis project (Q2/Q3/Q4)

For a long master thesis project the second year has the following structure:

  • • 5 EC Integration project (Q1)
  • • 10 EC Research project (Q1)
  • • 10 EC Literature study (Q2)
  • • 35 EC Master thesis project (Q2/Q3/Q4)

In case of a long master thesis project the Research project will be related to the final thesis project. In practice there is no problem in swapping the research project and literature study (so literature study in Q1 and research project in Q2). There will be separate grades for the research project and the master thesis project.

The description of the research project (SC52055) can be found in the study guide: studiegids.tudelft.nl/a101_displayCourse.do

The rubric for the research project can be found on the DCSC education site: https://d2k0ddhflgrk1i.cloudfront.net/3mE/Organisatie/Afdelingen/Delft%20Center%20for%20Systems%20and%20Control/Education/MSc%20Systems%20%26%20Control/Rubric%20Research%20assignment.pdf
