Once you have uploaded the project proposals, they will be reviewed by the separate program Thesis Coordinators to ensure the following:

  • The project adheres to the program’s thesis requirements
  • The project is a Master’s level project
  • The science is novel

If your project is rejected by the Thesis Coordinator, it does not mean that it  is entirely rejected. Please read their feedback and adjust the project. Based upon the adjustments, the Thesis Coordinator may then approve it. The Thesis Coordinator may also reach out to the project’s contact for questions. 

An Open Project is when you wish to leave the topic free to be discussed between you and a student. Or you wish to see what a student would like to propose to you. This allows for some creativity. 

To upload one, follow the same instructions under “How do I upload a project proposal?” and then choose all Research Tags under Section 1.7. 

If it is an Open Project for a specific type of student, please title it “Open Project AI” or Open Project Software Engineering”; then choose the corresponding program in Section 1.8.

The AI Thesis Fair is over.

Thesis Fair, Thursday 26 November  2020

  • Project proposals are due on Wednesday, 14 October 2020
  • Registration fee is due on Wednesday, 21 October
  • Students vote on the projects between 6 – 13 November
  • You will receive your personalised speeddate schedules, along with the students’ full names, no later than Friday, 20 November. Once you have your schedules, you can look up the students on LinkedIn and Github in preparation for your speeddates.

In a typical year, the Thesis Fairs are at the Science Park, about 300 people attend, and include:

  • Registration
  • 10 rounds of speeddates lasting 10 minutes long
    • If your projects are popular (receives many votes) and you are able to bring multiple organisation representatives, then you can meet with multiple students per speeddate session. For example, if you have over 100 students vote for your projects and you can bring 10 representatives –  then you can have 10 simultaneous speeaddates every round and meet with 100 students by the end of the day.
  • Break with refreshments 
  • Opportunity to mingle with more students afterwards

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have to adjust the format of the event. The Thesis Fair on 26 November, 2020 will be an online event. More details on this will be posted on this site and/or by email. 

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have to adjust the format of the events. Both the AI Thesis Fair on 1 October 2020 and  the Thesis Fair on 26 November 2020 will be an online event. More details on this will be posted on this site and/or by email. 

In your profile page, please fill in Section 1.5 “How many of the following video conferencing software can you use?”. This is imperative for our designing of the online AI Thesis Fair.

We have ensured that the 10 rounds of speed dates will occur. We strongly believe in the importance of one-on-one contact between a student and an organisation.

For a detailed description of the AI Thesis Fair and/or Thesis Fair project requirements, go to ‘Fairs’ on the main menu, hover over either ‘AI Thesis Fair’ or ‘Thesis Fair’, select ‘AI Project Requirements‘ or ‘Project Requirements‘. 

Please take note of each MSc Program’s thesis requirements and create your project proposal accordingly. The projects are reviewed and approved by the individual program Thesis Coordinators. Any project that does not adhere to the project requirements will be rejected and you will be required to make any requested adjustments.

This depends upon the program the student is in, your capacity, and internship negotiations with the student. The student may have classes that they need to complete and therefore may not be able to start their internship full-time until their Thesis course officially starts.

MSc AI students are available for 8 months starting in November 2020. 

MSc Information Studies (Data Science and Information Systems) are available for 3 – 6 months, depending upon their class schedules. Typically, they can start full time in April for 3 months. Some students may be able to start in January part-time. Please discuss with the students directly. 

 

MSc Software Engineering are available for 3 – 6 months, depending upon their class schedules. Typically, they can start full time in April for 3 months. Some students may be able to start in January part-time. Please discuss with the students directly.

MSc Computational Science. Students are typically available for 7-8 months, depending upon their class schedules. Usually, they can start full time in November/December for 7 – 8 months.

MSc Logic. Students are typically available for 6 months, depending upon their class schedules. Usually, they can start full time in January for full-time for 6 months.

MSc Computer Science. Students are typically available for 6 months, depending upon their class schedules. Usually, they can start full time in September or January for full-time for 6 months.

 

The AI Thesis Fair is dedicated to students from the MSc Artificial Intelligence.

The Thesis Fair has students from the following programs participating:

This is possible and it does not cost money to simply have your projects listed on the Project Marketplace. 

You will still need an account and follow all of the steps in uploading a project. The only difference is that you leave Section 1.6 blank and NOT click on a Fair. Choosing a Fair in Section 1.6 automatically generates a payment request. 

Your uploaded projects will still need to adhere to the Project Requirements for each program and will be reviewed and approved by our Thesis Coordinators.

On the Thesis Marketplace page there is the option to change to the previous Academic Year. Once you apply that filter, on the top left, then you can review projects from previous years.
