During the master project you have to show that you can:
  • interpret a possibly general project proposal and translate it to more concrete research questions.
  • find and study relevant literature, software and hardware tools, and critically assess their merits.
  • work in a systematic way and document your findings as you progress.
  • work in correspondence with the level of the elective courses you have followed.
  • perform original work that has sufficient depth to be relevant to the research in the chair.
  • work independently and goal oriented under the guidance of a supervisor.
  • seek assistance within the research group or elsewhere, if required and beneficial for the project.
  • benefit from the guidance of your supervisor by scheduling regular meetings, provide the supervisor with progress reports and initiate topics that will be discussed.
  • organize your work by making a project plan, executing it, adjusting it when necessary, and handling unexpected developments.
  • write a Master thesis that motivates your work for a general audience, and communicates the work and its results in a clear, well-structured way to your peers.
  • give a presentation with similar qualities to fellow-students and members of the chair.
Please note that the course information below corresponds to the course of ‘21/’22. This course is currently being updated for the MSc Robotics programme and therefore changes in course content might occur.

The Master Thesis Project is the final part of the Robotics Master program. The project for the Master Thesis is carried out in the research group (chair) that you have chosen in the beginning of your Master program. It is relevant to the research of the chair and relates to the field of the elective courses you have chosen. Information on available Master projects can usually be found on the chair's website or from the professor directly.
For more information about the procedure and the rules of the master’s thesis see the description on the UT website.
Assumed previous knowledge
At the start of your master’s thesis research all previous study units should have been completed with the possible exception of not more than 10EC of elective courses.
