Master Allocation Procedure

The Department of Mechanical Engineering coordinates the MSc Program Mechanical Engineering and the interdepartmental MSc Programs Automotive Technology, Systems and Control, and Sustainable Energy Technology.

In order to ensure that all MSc students will get  qualitative supervision, the Board of the Department of Mechanical Engineering aims to match the number of MSc students within each section with the available supervision capacity of that section. For this reason a ‘Master Allocation Procedure’ is implemented within the Department of Mechanical Engineering and is intended to allocate students to sections and to provide students with a suitable position within the university to complete their MSc project.

In the current procedure the supervision capacity for the Mechanical Engineering sections in each of the four MSc programs is determined before the start of the academic year.

The Master Allocation Procedure, including its regulations, applies to all students enrolled in one of the MSc Programs offered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering. This allocation procedure directly affects S&C students who would like to perform their thesis work in one of the sections in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering.
