Your personal mentor plays an important role during your stay in Eindhoven. This is a unique aspect of the programs in our department. After completing the core courses in the first semester, you will choose the research area in which you want to carry out your final Master's project. You will be assigned a mentor at the end of the first semester who will provide you with close support and counseling, and who will help you to get the best results possible out of the three remaining semesters of the program. Your mentor will help you to select a good combination of elective courses in preparation for your final project, and will act as supervisor during this phase. We aim to achieve a good match between your interests and the research of your mentor, so that both of you will get the maximum benefit from working together.
