The research specialisation comprises research training projects to a total of at least 60 EC, including a presentation for the research group and a written report, the master thesis.

The electives consist of a free choice of theoretical courses or an extension of the research project by a maximum of 20 EC. The mentor may limit the choice in elective courses by the need to adapt the programme to the present knowledge of the student. You train your communication skills via the essay and colloquium (6 EC).
