Learning goals
The final project is a 30-credit project completed over a half-year period, which rounds off the Master's programme. It is a research and/or development exercise. While the final project is frequently an individual project, some students choose to complete the assignment in groups of two or more. The final project may be developed and implemented internally (within the UT), it may also involve a commissioned assignment from a company or another higher education institution. Some projects are completed abroad. The project usually follows a preceding Research topics. The final project is a 'Master's test'. In completing the project, the student demonstrates that he/she merits the Master of Science qualification.
