Term projects (Onderzoeksstage) Master Computational Science & Visualization

Master year 1, period 4.4 (15 EC)

Department of Mathematics and Computing Science, RuG


Goal of the research project is a first introduction to scientific research. First you choose a research topic (see the list below) and a corresponding supervisor. During the research period, you wil be trained in various research skills:

During the research project, you will be actively involved in our research group Scientific Visualization and Computer Graphics, for example by attending biweekly group meetings. You will also give several presentations about your project.

After finishing your research project, you should have a clearer idea about how scientific research is done, and also whether this is interesting for you to pursue in your later academic study (and career).
