The MSPME Consortium

Masters Thesis

Students undertake original research through submission of a Masters thesis at Umea University. Students begin this process from the beginning of the masters by developing the necessary skills to formulate a research proposal. Topics for the thesis are confirmed during Semester 2, either internally through the guidance or proposals from academic staff across all three institutions, or externally through an Associate Partner or industrial contacts.

The MSPME thesis prepares grounding for those who wish to pursue PhD, indeed a number of MSPME graduates have published their Thesis in research journals and presented papers at conferences.
