Doing your Masters
Doing your Masters
Many exciting Master's projects can be defined by applying state-of-the-art planning, scheduling, optimization and game-theoretical algorithms to real-world problems.
To do your Master's thesis project within the Algorithmics group, we require you to:
- meet the general requirements for doing a master in Computer Science (see study guide), and
- have completed the relevant courses offered by the Algorithmics group, including at least the course Advanced Algorithms (or AI Techniques) and others as confirmed with your supervisor.
If you do your Master's within the Algorithmics group, you may join the research project of one of the members, who will be your daily supervisor. You are also expected to join the Monthly Master's Meetings. We offer a sample of available master's projects. Please contact the staff member mentioned next to the project you are most interested in. We also have a list of current and previous Master's students, and some instructions for doing your Masters and writing your thesis.
- Important: EWI's manual for the MSc Thesis project
- Also important: various other relevant information, for example concerning afstuderen, examendata, formulieren and reglementen.
- The LaTeX style from de TU Delft huisstijl (we recommend you write your thesis in LaTex).
After your literature survey, your first assignment will be to write a Master's Thesis Proposal. Guidelines for writing such a proposal are given at this page from the software engineering group. Please read this text carefully.
When you start doing your Master's project within Algorithmics, first arrange the following.
- Add all the activities of the Algorithmics group to your agenda. We expect you to be there!
- Put yourself on the alg_masters mailing list to get updated on new activities.
- Be sure to attend the Monthly Master's Meetings.
- See the people page for your colleagues, and send your supervisor a mail with a request to be added there.
- Come every day to work at the workstations at the 7th floor, together with the other Master's students.
- Join us for lunch every day at 12:00.
- When you start doing a your study, be sure to check out these research tips.
- Yingqian Zhang's presentation on Research skills is very useful to get an idea of what doing research is.
- Make notes during the meetings with your supervisor.
- When you have finished your literature report, and when you have finished your Master's thesis, it is a good idea to make it available to the world. Therefore, add them to the publication website. [ repository.tudelft.nl ]
