The research project is the compulsory internship of any Master's Research degree. The teacher-researchers of the host laboratories define the subjects of the research projects. The subjects are specified as soon as students begin the Master programme.
The topics and subjects are chosen so students can:
• integrate a research team • become familiar with document research • learn in more depth about methods and tools studied in previous courses • discover other areas of study which are also linked to the same research subject • develop their abilities and skills (thinking, analysing, synthesising etc...) on a specific subject • determine a possible future PhD dissertation subject for those wishing to pursue their studies
The topics chosen are on research subjects which have been identified by companies/laboratories. The topics have come up after periods of questioning from both researchers and industrialists. In some cases, students must collaborate with the company which leads to participating in the daily life of the business.
The oral presentation lasts 25 minutes and is followed by questions lasting 20 minutes. The presentation is public.
