DISCLAIMER: Please note that the current content of the page applies only to HTI Master theses (graduation projects) starting before Q3 2021-2022. The HTI Master Thesis Project (MTP) system changes for students conducting their thesis from Q3 2021-2022 onwards. The new HTI MTP will have a limited duration corresponding to 30 ECTs, start in Q1 or Q3, and use allocation to pre-defined thesis topics according to student preferences and teacher capacity. You can find the study guide about the new HTI MTP here. Information about the new MTP will be given through the Osiris courses 0MAPHTI-B (MTP start in semester B) and 0MAPHTI-B (MTP start in semester A) and students will be asked by the CSA to register there in Osiris the semester before their MTP.
Where, how and with whom to do the graduation project?
Within the HTI master program, you can do your graduation project externally (e.g. working in a project at a company or a government agency) as well internally (working closely together with a researcher of the HTI group). In all cases, a staff member of the HTI group will be supervising your project. In the graduation projects section, we present for each staff member their topics of interest and some examples from past projects they have supervised.
Who is coordinating the graduation projects?
Currently, Uwe Matzat is coordinating the graduation projects. When you start planning your project, you should consult him. He will be aware of projects that are open. Together with him, you can discuss what project would match your interests and who could be a suitable supervisor. Even if you already have a supervisor and a project, you should still visit Peter Ruijten. In this way we can keep track of all the ongoing projects. He can also tell you more about the procedures. The document attached below already provides some information on important issues regarding the HTI master project.
What facilities are provided for students who do their projects internally?
The HTI group has good facilities for students who do an internal graduation project. First, the HTI labs are available for research. Secondly, there are several office spaces available were several students can work on their projects. For more details about the facilities, contact the HTI secretary office.
