We offer an Master by Research (MBR) in the subjects of Electronics and Computer Engineering where the students start up their own project.


The Master by Research (MBR) programme targets those who are highly motivated to develop skills and knowledge for future career in academic, industrial or public R&D. This is also an excellent preparation for future doctoral studies.

MBR is a study programme where the students start up their own project, which after two years will lead a Master's thesis. The students will be a member of a research group at STC and carry out research closely supervised by a professor and other members of the research group.

Only a few students will be admitted to MBR. If you have shown excellent results in your Bachelor studies and are self-motivated to further specialize in your field academically, this is something for you.
