The Master’s Thesis Project comprises 30 - 45 ECTS and should take a maximum of nine months of work. The Master’s Thesis Project consists of a research or design assignment.
The Master’s Thesis Project may be done within a research programme of the university, or within another suitable context, e.g. a research institute or enterprise. Companies should be aware that the Master’s Thesis Project may require some freedom for academic work which may not directly contribute to the company’s own business process. The thesis should have sufficient academic depth. The project, being either a research or design project should be performed by following a systematic approach, and the assignment should cover all phases of a research/design project including an explicit modelling/implementation/building phase, and a validation/evaluation of the results
Ultimately three months before starting the actual thesis work, you should decide upon a specialisation.
