Lecturers of the Oceans and Lakes programme, as well as researchers from the associated research groups send out the topics for the master thesis each year at the end of October. These are made available through the Matix system. All the details of the topics are mentioned on Matix. Supervisors can organize seperate information moments about their topics. This can be done in person or online. Students sign in for the information moments via Matix. For the proposed thesis topics, we do not work on a first come first served basis. Students must pick their top 3 of topics, and send a motivation for each of them, through the Matix system.
Although possible thesis topics are suggested by superviros, own initiaves of students are also supported when fitting in the programme's research frameworks.
