Content (Syllabus outline)

At meetings with the seminar organizer, the students present their work towards the Master's theses. By presenting his or her Master's thesis, the student gains a deeper understanding of the subject and improves his or her presentation skills. At the same time the students get prepared for the presentation of their final Master’s thesis. The listeners learn more about the work of other students. The seminar organizer also prepares some lectures about making the Master’s thesis or invites other specialists.
The seminar naturally complements the Master’s thesis.
