The M2R project

An overview presentation about the Masters Research Project. Pay special attention to the evaluation criteria.

Your project will be presented and evaluated by one of 3 jurys, depending on your specialisation. The jurys are composed of the directors of two specialisations, one of three "rotating" members, an external expert to be named by your project director, and one of the MoSIG directors.

Attention - For Research Projects: Your and your adviser MUST nominate an expert who is competent in the field of your project and can provide a credible evaluation of your work. The expert must NOT be in the same research group, or have participated in the project. The expert should have a doctorate and must be neutral. You should nominate your external expert, and communicate his name at the time that you hand in your report. Your report is not complete without the expert.
