Students learn how to start the thesis process by transforming a broad topic/idea into a proper, feasible research proposal.
Writing a master thesis is a compulsory part of the program curriculum. The skills training assists students in getting the thesis process started, First, students will be informed about the formal process of writing a master thesis at our faculty, i.e., format of the thesis, requirements, grading rules, resit options etc. Second, students will learn how to develop a research idea and finally transferring it into a proper and feasible research proposal. This is the main part of the training and assists students by writing down the academic relevance of their topic and how to develop a research design. The main goal is to finally have a clearly defined research proposal with which the student can start approaching a thesis supervisor. Third, the skills training helps students to find a thesis supervisor.
