Självständigt arbete:

The master's thesis work (30 credits) should deal with a clearly defined topic within a restricted areas of what has been previously studied at courses within the Master programme. It can be carried out at Chalmers, in industry, in research institute or at other universities. Although, the examiner has always to be a teacher from Chalmers. To start the thesis work the student must have passed 45 credits of courses from the programme. Students pursuing the five-year Master of Science in Engineering training must have passed at least 225 credits before beginning work on a thesis.


There is a possibility to carry out an extended master’s thesis project (60 credits) with a clear research orientation. There will only be a limited number of such theses available (applied for in competition with your fellow students), and the requirements of the students are higher than for a normal thesis. A goal of a 60 credit thesis is to produce research results good enough to be presented at international conferences or journals. For further information please refer to the course syllabus or contact the master program coordinator.
