Withdrawal

It is not allowed to withdraw from this subject after the registration deadline.

Summary

The Master project is the culmination of a student's work of analysis, design and implementation, which proves his/her engineering capacities. Students will engage in laboratory-based projects in the field of bioengineering.

Content

In the context of a Master Project, the student works on a problem defined by the head of the laboratory where the project will be carried out, whether that is at EPFL, at another university where he/she is doing an exchange program, or in a company. The head of the laboratory must
ensure that the student can carry out the necessary analysis and design work that will subsequently allow the EPFL advising professor to evaluate the engineering capacities of the student.

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Master cycle BIOENG

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Transversal skills

Expected student activities

Students will focus on hands-on experimentation, which may be wetlab-based or computer-based, depending on the project. Students will read and discuss assigned papers from the original
scientific literature. As part of the evaluation process, students are required to submit a written report and give an oral presentation that summarizes and interprets their results.

Assessment methods

Written report

Oral presentation

Supervision

Others Typically, the student will be matched with a secondary mentor (this will usually be a senior PhD student or a Postdoctoral Fellow) who will take responsibility for the day-to-day supervision and training of the student.

Resources

Bibliography

Appropriate reading materials will be assigned by the student's mentor depending on the nature of the research project. The assigned reading material will usually comprise original research papers, review articles, and secondary sources (e.g., books).
