Magister's Thesis Spring 2018
Welcome to the website for the Magister's thesis (15 credits) course for ITM and HCI.
The course gives the student an opportunity to apply a scientific approach to independently and critically formulate and solve problems in the field of informatics. The course consists of choice of subjects, formulation of problem/issue and delimitation, design and implementation of a study and preparation of a written report. Depending on the focus of the thesis work, preparation of an IT application may also be included. The thesis work is presented and defended in a seminar. In connection with the work on the written report, the student will be given knowledge of and insight into current methodological issues relevant to scientific work in the field of informatics.
There are four assignments on the course. More details about these will be presented as the course starts, but in short they consist of:
Thesis proposal - The formulation of a topic for the thesis presented in a written document
The thesis - To write a thesis based upon the results of a scientific exploration undertaken during the course
Presentation and discussion - To present the work done by the student and to provide feedback and reflections based upon the work of others
Publication - To finalize the thesis for publication and to publish it in the Diva database
