Thesis topics

BIOMATH offers MSc. students the possibility to get involved in our latest research projects. Every student is guided by one or more motivated PhD students which master their field of research. This way, students do not start from scratch but build on the knowledge of the tutors (including computer code).

While we give a lot of confidence and flexibility to our students, we expect them to use it wisely. Indeed, we work hard but we also take time have fun and celebrate our successes. In our experience this improves the quality of our students research significantly. Therefore, a master thesis at BIOMATH is a both a professional and a personal learning experience.
