Lecture contents

During this course, the students independently - with the support of the Master's Thesis Coordinator - seek a research project in an inter/national life science research institution or research company, whose content, quality and duration is suitable to write a high-quality master's thesis. Together with the direct supervisor of the research project, the students prepare a project plan for the course of the research project. The plan contains the project goals, the problem definition and the method spectrum to be used.
In small groups, the students present the elaborated plans of their planned research projects to their peer group as well as their motivation to carry out this research project. The group discusses and reflects on the presented problems, strategies and methods and gives their feedback.

Lecture contents

The Master's examination represents the final examination of the Master's program before an examination committee of experts. The students present their Master's thesis in the form of a lecture. The students are questioned about their presentation and they defend the contents and conclusions of their Master's thesis. They are asked to cross-connect the topic of their Master's thesis to relevant subjects of the degree program. The students reflect and discuss current research topics from the main fields of the Master's program with the examination committee of experts.

Assessment methods

Final exam
For the presentation of the Master's thesis up to 40 points are awarded by the examination committee. Up to 30 points are awarded for the subsequent discussion on the presentation. Up to 30 points are also awarded for the discussion of current research topics from the main areas of the Master's program. The sum of these points gives the overall grade for the Master's examination.
