Master's assignment and graduate procedures

Master's assignment

The last part of the master Applied Physics is in general the master's assignment. You have to register in OSIRIS to get acces to the Canvas site AP Master's assignment. On the Canvas site you can find, besides a lot of other information, all the information about the organisational issues before, during and after finishing your assignment.
