An “Applied Period” is a compulsory work placement which students have to do in a national, transnational or international organisation. The aim of this is to get a first insight into the industry and the application of the theoretical knowledge in a real working environment. The master’s thesis is a scientific paper with a high international standard and serves to get a joint degree (degree consisting of two master’s degrees of two different universities). Thus the research work will be supervised by a professor of each of the two universities. A study period abroad is compulsory.
A cover letter, a curriculum vitae and two letters of recommendation must be enclosed with the application for this programme.
