Master’s Thesis

​The Master’s Thesis is the final part of the programme, in which an urban environmental challenge is examined during an individual research project (hereafter referred to as ‘the research internship’).

During this research internship, the student demonstrates being able to approach a complex engineering problem – relevant within the academic and/or professional context – from a scientific point of view. Moreover, the student shows that the ability to summarise the acquired insights and proposed solutions in a coherent report. The argumentation is based on literature research and complemented with own empirical data. The research internship is conducted within a research group in the field of bioscience engineering at the University of Antwerp, Ghent University and/or KU Leuven.

The course Master’s Thesis, including research internship comprises 30 credits and is situated in the second master’s year.
