Preliminaries & general information
At the start of the Master's programme, the student is expected to contact the advisor of the specialisation of interest (see the table given below) to select a thesis supervisor.
In the first half year the student is expected to follow courses to prepare for the thesis research. After that, the thesis project can be commenced. While the thesis work is being performed, the student still takes courses, usually the most advanced ones. Students are in particular encouraged to also have discussions about this material with the members of the department in which they are embedded.
The student should register to the applicable master thesis course in Osiris (see below). This will grant access to the relevant blackboard course containing three assignments to monitor the planning and progress of the project. The first assignment is the project planning and should be finished in consultation with the supervisor at the start of the project. The second and third assignments are the intermediate and final evaluation.
Every specialisation has its own course code, make sure that you register for the correct one:
- NWI-NM086C Physics of Molecules and Materials
- NWI-NM086D Particle and Astrophysics
- NWI-NM086E Neuroscience
