    RMNS-1.10Writing and Presenting Research Proposals
  • During the second year you conduct the experiments as proposed in your project description. After completing the research project you will present the results and write up your master's thesis, in the form of a paper that is of sufficient quality to be published in an international peer-reviewed journal.

    You will choose from a list of technical workshops and gain hand on experience that will help you to perform your research. Below the list of workshops you can choose from.
