Master's thesis

The concluding Master’s thesis project is a research and design assignment where you apply the theories and skills you have developed in the program. During the second and third semesters you will work on the preparations for your project. In the final semester you will focus totally on the internship. 

Most projects are conducted in full or in part on site at our industrial partners, and some 90% of students choose to conduct their thesis work on-site at one or more companies. Projects include a wide variety of subjects and will require you to specialize further in one of the three key disciplines that contribute to the program.

Internship abroad

In the third semester you will have the opportunity to follow a research internship at a university abroad. Outside the academic year the program also offers extracurricular summer internships, which you can follow between the second and third semesters.

Additional requirements for students from outside the Netherlands

Students from outside of the Netherlands are admitted to this course based on an individual program. This means you will need to pass some extra undergraduate (minor/pre-Master) courses, up to a maximum of 15 ECTS. These courses can be included as part of the free electives for your Master program.
