Master Project PDCS


Course Objective

With the Master project, the student is to demonstrate the ability to
integrate knowledge, insights, and skills gained so far in the Master
programme, and to apply them to a new or otherwise unknown subject.

Course Content

The student is offered a research question that needs to be answered
following a systematic approach. This approach includes steps such as
exploring relevant literature, and will, in general, consist of setting
up and carrying out experiments by means of simulations, emulations, or
actual systems software. The results and findings will be described in a
thesis conforming to the academic standards in the field. An oral
presentation of the project results concludes the project.

Teaching Methods

The Master Project is supervised by a staff member of the Department of
Computer Science of the VU.

Method of Assessment

The final grade is determined by the project supervisor and a second
reader, based on the quality of the research (3/6), the written thesis
(2/6), and an oral presentation (1/6).

Entry Requirements

The student must have completed (almost) the complete study program
before starting the Master Project.
