Introduction

 

 


After completing module 11 on research skills, the students follow two advanced topics. These
topics are offered by the scientific departments in modules 12 and 13, and are designed to equip
the students with specific tools, methods and applications that are important for their intended
MSc Research.
In selecting these two advanced topics, the students therefore have to make a logical choice that
fits to their MSc Research that will be carried out during the MSc Research phase (modules 16-
23). The choice of advanced topics has to be submitted before the start of module 11.
