MSc Theses & Internships

Thesis

Students can perform a 6-month MSc thesis (36 credits) at HWM as part of the specialisation Hydrology and Water Resources of the MSc programme Earth and Environment (MEE) or the specialisation The Physical Climate System of the MSc programme Climate Studies (MCL). There are also possibilities for minor theses (of e.g. 4 months) for students from other specilialisations or programmes (if they meet the requirements).

Given the large number of thesis options (research subjects) the chair group offers and the time needed for preparing the thesis work, students are advised to start the selection of a subject/supervisor a few months before the actual starting date. Please contact Roel Dijksma (HWM thesis coordinator) first. He can give more information on the procedure and can facilitate the contact with a supervisor from the HWM-staff.

As of 1 September 2020, the assessment forms for internships and MSc theses have become equal for all study programmes within Wageningen UR. The rubrics (the sheet that describes performance that corresponds to marks) are still subject to discussion, and will be made definitive before the end of the year.

Internships

Students can perform a 4-month intership (24 credits) at HWM as part of the specialisation Hydrology and Water Resources of the MSc programme Earth and Environment (MEE) or the specialisation The Physical Climate System of the MSc programme Climate Studies (MCL).
