The last semester of the Masters Course is devoted to a research based Masters Project. The masters thesis (27 ECTS) is to be based in one of the following three fields: 

  • Chemistry of Materials
  • Physics of Materials
  • Materials Characterisation

or from one of the subjects from one of the 5 study modules. The thesis will be presented in the context of a Materials Seminar (1 ECTS) and defended in a formal thesis examination (2 ECTS). There is a broad range of possible Masters topics as can be seen from the following list of completed theses.
