Time to start the thesis work?

But no idea of the topic or supervisor? This project may help to start.

By registering to the project, you indicate willingness to start the Master's thesis in near future. This means you will be contacted by a staff member to help find a supervisor who then takes over the process. To register to the project, you should have most of your advanced courses and seminars completed, so that you can graduate within one year of registration including the thesis work. You should be a computer science student heading for 40 cr or 30 cr Master's thesis, depending on which degree programme you follow.

If you already have a supervisor or clear track whom to contact, there is no need to register. This project works as an additional route, especially for students already working in industry with e.g. some gap in studies but almost only the thesis missing.

In addition to providing a personal contact, the project works as an information channel for thesis related activities.

See Materials section for various forms, latex-templates, assessment matrices, etc. that are required at different stages of the thesis project. There is also a link to available thesis topics.

Welcome to the thesis project!

Here is some information how things go forward:
- The Board of the CS Master's Programme discusses the new registrations in its meetings and assigns contact persons for each.
- Board meeting schedule is shown here: https://guide.student.helsinki.fi/en/article/thesis-and-maturity-test-ma...
- Also other more ad hoc contact assignments take place between the meetings, but Board meetings work as checkpoints.

Meanwhile, you can check the list of thesis topics and make an initiative yourself: https://wiki.helsinki.fi/display/csm/Master%27s+Thesis+topics

Once you have things settled (found a topic + supervisor), please unregister from this project, so we know the status.

Note that there are many parties involved in the process and miscommunications happen. Please contact the organizers if you are not contacted in reasonable time / already started process halts.
