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.

    We are gradually learning how to adapt to the Corona outbreak, both in our everyday lives as well as at the university. For us, this means changing to online teaching for the duration of the current semester. Courses and exams held in lecture halls and seminar rooms will not be possible, with exception to some special exams. Regulations for this are currently being drawn up; exceptions are also to be made for selected laboratory exercises and practical sports courses.
    Information of 23rd April 2020: The Minister of Science’s new ruling on special regulations for study law at universities has now been announced, which gives us the opportunity to regulate some important matters. Please note that these regulations have been set for a limited time period (i.e. for this semester, but sometimes even beyond this).
