Composition of study program

The Examinations Committee must approve your program consisting of the mandatory courses and your choice of the electives (possibly including an internship). In order to obtain this approval you construct a program, possibly with the help of your mentor and/or academic advisor.

You get the approval by submitting the Study Program form. The academic advisors will explain the process to you during your first year. Fill out the study program form, sign it, get it approved by the master thesis supervisor of your choice (or another representative of the same research group) and hand it in at the student administration (

See the graduation checklist for a timeline and the required forms. To make sure you do not miss courses you should choose, it is recommended to submit your study program around the end of quarter 3 of your first year. If needed you can still make changes later and re-submit the form when you apply for the start of your preparation phase.
