Omschrijving The Master's Project is an individual research project that is carried out under the supervision of examiners from the Master's Programme Biomedical Engineering. The project has to be conducted at a department affiliated with MSc programme Biomedical Engineering at UG/UMCG, or at a company affiliated with biomedical engineering. It is possible to conduct (a part of) the Master's Project abroad.
The Master's Project preparation includes finding a project, writing a project proposal with a (detailed) time planning, (career) related workshops, presentation of the project proposal (winter symposium) and presentation of the results (summer symposium).
For the Master's Project 30 ECTS is awarded if completed satisfactory.
