      - Essentials course (10 EC) + two elective courses (10 EC)
     b.Students who started their master in (or after) September 2014:

Enrolment / registration for the Master Thesis COM 
Note: As of April 2015, student registration in the Student Mobility System (SMS) is no longer required.

In order to register yourself to start with the Master Thesis, you need to send a research proposal to the thesis coordinator (Mark Tempelman, m.h.tempelman@utwente.nl) , based on which supervision can be assigned. Your research proposal therefore basically is your “graduation contract” or “learning agreement”.

The thesis coordinator will send a confirmation of the assigned supervisor by e-mail and that completes the registration procedure.
