Master of Science in Computational Physics
How to get started with your thesis
- Arrange regular (e.g. weekly) meetings with your supervisor/instructor.
- Talk also to MSC students working in the same field.
- Confirm via email to departmental project coordinator that you and your supervisor agree on the aim of your Thesis and the audience it is intended to.
- It is a good idea, from the very beginning of your work, to start writing brief summaries/documentation on what you have done and what you have read.
- To get a feeling of what is required, go to the library and take a look at some accepted Masters theses.
- Check schedule for proposal presentations and other presentations.
How to finish
- Fill the intent to submit form, 3 months before the intented submission date.
- The Master's Thesis is worth 12 credits but students register for 6 credits per semester and it gets credited at the end of the Academic year.
- Remember that the Master's thesis (like the Bachelors thesis) is a supervised work and you are entitled to get instruction for the related research and writing. Usually the supervisor reads your text 2-3 times so the first version does not need to be the final one. After your Master's thesis is completed, the examiners ( there are two of them) have one month to give their evaluation.
- The schedule of finishing the Thesis should be discussed with the supervisor. In case you have a specific deadline for finishing your studies, make sure your supervisor knows it. Feel free to discuss all practical aspects of your work, including the level you aim at, with your supervisor.
- The department recommends using this template ( for References ) for your thesis.
- Also check if your thesis is inline with the university check list.
