Master Thesis (24 ECTS)

In finding a topic and a supervisor for their Master Thesis, students can talk to the teachers of the various courses in the Master program. For this reason, the selection of courses in the Master program should be in line with the topic of your Master Thesis, taking into account that most courses are offered only once per year.
