Game and Media Technology (GMT) Colloquium
The Colloquium Game and Media Technology is a series of talks and research paper presentations on GMT-related topics. The main focus of the colloquium is to give you the opportunity to prepare and practice giving a talk, and to widen the knowledge about different research directions related to GMT. Furthermore, there will be invited talks from GMT research and/or the industry, as well as sessions with a special topic, such as scientific integrity.
Research part (40 EC)
The majority of the 2nd year is spend on conducting a research project and writing your Master’s thesis.
The research project is your final project part of the programme. In this project, you will work on a research question within the field of game and media technology. The topic is defined in collaboration with a supervisor from the department. The master project consists of two phases. In the first phase (15 EC), you will write a literature study and you will further define your research question based on your literature review. You will get a separate grade for this phase. In the second phase (25 EC), you will perform the research and write a report about the results that includes the literature review you have written in the first phase. You will also give a presentation about your work. The master project can be done internally, or externally at another university or at a company, in the Netherlands or in another country.
