Master thesis project (45 EC)
In the final thesis project the student carries out a research project under the supervision of one of the staff members of the research groups offering the AI programme. The project can be done within Utrecht University or in a research-and-development department of a company or research institute, or at a foreign university. In the past, students have carried out external thesis projects in such companies as KPN, Origin, The Dutch Tax and Customs Office, Vitatron Medical B.V, TNO, NS, ING, STRO, VSTEP, LibRT and Playlogic Game Factory, and at foreign universities or with companies in Australia, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, the USA and Switzerland.
When done within the Utrecht University, your final thesis project is monitored by a supervisor from the AI-programma teaching staff. When the final project is conducted within a company or external institute, you will be guided by both a local supervisor within the company/institute and a supervisor of the AI-programme teaching staff.
