In your master's thesis, you will prove that you are able to analyse a problem in Computing or Information Science at master level and design a solution for this problem using scientific methods and techniques. It is possible to combine your research for the master's project with an internship in a suitable company.
To help you form ideas about a project and/or supervisor and/or company for your thesis research, you can visit the master thesis market organized at the end of Q1, and/or look at the possibilities for projects on the website of the Master Thesis Lab. There are overviews of topics with supervisors and companies. Also, you will find procedures to start your project.
The procedural steps and practicalities of starting and handing in your thesis are determined by the faculty as described on this page. Please take note of these regulations and the necessary steps therein!
- Master Thesis Lab (MTL)
For Computing and Information Sciences, you can find additional information on the pages of the Master Thesis Lab (MTL), which is coordinated by the master thesis coordinator Patrick van Bommel. Here you can find further guidelines and information on:
- General information
The MTL is a semi-autonomous student research institute. The projects within this institute are planned and carried out by students, and reflect their own fields of interest. At the same time, the results of these projects serve the purpose of Master Thesis for the final assignment of the studies in Computing and Information Science. The MTL research covers purely academic as well as business-oriented goals, and is embedded within larger research projects of the university.
If you do an external project in a company, you must yield a result which is acceptable for the university as well as for the company. This is your own responsibility. You should follow all procedures given on the MTL-website.
For an external project at a company, it is recommended to have this form (pdf, 425 kB) signed by the company before you start the project (you have to fill out the first three pages yourself). Send the form to your internship coordinator so that they can sign it as well.
Please contact the master thesis coordinator Patrick van Bommel (P.vanBommel@cs.ru.nl) if you need more information.
