Learning goals

In this seminar the knowledge exchange between you and the other students is promoted. You attend the seminar twice during your master studies. In the first run (701-1211-01) you write a proposal on a current research subject or your future master thesis project. This aims at strengthening your scientific writing skills and introduces you to a typical publishing/reviewing process. In the second run (701-1211-02) you present the status of your master thesis project.

Please take note that you attend the seminar in your second master semester at ETH (i.e. you already spent one semester in courses as preparation) and again during the master thesis, as indicated in the curriculum. Both seminars run parallel in each semester! Please only register for one seminar at a time at (701-1211-01 in your 2nd semester, and 701-1211-02 in your master thesis semester).

We also want to use this seminar for a critical review of our programme.

Attendance in all classes listed below is mandatory. Performance assessment in Seminar 1 (701-1211-01) is an accepted proposal and in Seminar 2 (701-1211-02) an oral presentation & accepted project management documentation. In each seminar 3 ECTS can be acquired (no grades, pass/fail).
