Projects (UE S2-5 and S3-14)

Project modules exist in both years of our Master curriculum to give our students the opportunity to work more independently than is the case in the traditional lecture-tutorial-laboratory modules.
The project of the first year consists of exploring a nanotechnology-related topic in a small group, for example by compiling a report on the state of the art in some domain of nanotechnology and its implications for society, by designing a prototype of a device or by developing a new concept for a practical course. The independent group work is supported by courses on bibliographical research, project management, presentation and communication.
The project of the second year is reserved for a literature survey, allowing our students to prepare for their Master thesis projects.
