Specialization Project - The Master’s Final Project

The final project for MSc in Engineering students is the master thesis. Companies can gain knowledge on a very high level by collaborating with the master thesis students. At SDU we encourage students to carry out the master thesis project in collaboration with a company, but it is not a demand. 

The master thesis projects can have two structures: a 30 ECTS project  - 1 semester eg. duration 5 month  or 40 ECTS  - 2 semsters eg. duration  10  month.
