Overview

Prerequisites for the for the FUSION-EP Master are

  1. Qualified Bachelor Degree (equivalent to 6 semesters study of physics)
  2. Proficiency in English Language

The programme starts with the Winter Term, and the duration is 4 semesters. The first year will be in one country, and the second year in a different country, to be decided according to track choice and thesis topic group. Placement for the second year will be decided before the second semester. 

The 2 tracks are:

  • T1: Fusion Science
  • T2: Fusion Engineering

After each Summer semester, a mandatory meeting of all students takes place (Summer Event). Second year students will defend their thesis there.

The Master comprises a total of 120 ECTS points.

Thesis Modalities and Template

In the second year, you will write your Master thesis and defend it during the Summer Event. You have to abide by the thesis modalities given below.  It is strongly recommended that you either use the template or that your thesis look as if you had used it.

 



Examinations (Deadlines!)

Usually, individual oral examinations to each lecture are held by the professor delivering the corresponding lecture. The duration is 30 min. The lecturer can deviate from this, and it is possible that a written exam is given. You must use this form to register your exams in advance and sign it to acknowledge the rules.

All examinations have to be completed by the last workday before August 31 of the academic year. Exams cannot take place on the weekend. In case of failure in the first try, the deadline is the last workday before September 11. After these deadlines results cannot be accepted anymore and the courses will be marked as failed.
