The subject of the Master's Thesis will be the student's own research project, completed under the supervision of a faculty member while working within one of the department's research groups. The research project and its presentation will involve learning about the research topic; planning the work; executing the plan; documenting all results according to the formal criteria of an audit committee; explaining the project and its results in the written Thesis; and finally presenting the results in a half-hour talk followed by a fifteen-minute discussion.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Writing and presenting a Master's Thesis develops the ability to plan and carry out a theoretical or experimental research project in a specialized field of physics, and to explain it clearly to others. During this final phase of the Master's Program, students will attain a professional level of scientific expertise on their specific topic, as well as mastering the essential professional skills of interdisciplinary teamwork and proper scientific conduct.
