GEOS9AA / GERU04 / RM0 Masters

Research scientific project


Credits : 8 ECTS

Duration: 48 half days

Semester : S9

Person(s) in charge:

Olivier DECK, Professeur,

Keywords : Research, Scientific paper, bibliography

Prerequisites : 

Objective :

With the aim to give all students an education through research (and not in research), they are asked to carry out a research project, challenging enough so that the undertaking has a purpose, limited enough so that it is feasible


The project is, except in the case of particular exceptions, individual.

While it can have a strong bibliographic emphasis, it will not be limited to this. A significant part must involve material realization (observations, experiments, calculations, etc.).

The project can take place outside of the school or in an outside laboratory and concludes with a report. It will be conducted under the supervision of the research advisor who proposed the subject and who will also give the final evaluation. The form of the report can, in certain cases, have a scientific note, “ready for publication”.

An oral presentation (viva voce) will be given at the end of the project. This will also be part of the final evaluation, which will be given by the research advisor(s) of the project and coordinated by the leader of the course.
