The electives consist of a free choice of theoretical courses or an extension of the research project by a maximum of 20 EC. The mentor may limit the choice in elective courses by the need to adapt the programme to the present knowledge of the student.

Students can choose their electives from the list of core courses within or outside their specialisation, the MSc courses offered in the Science Faculty of level 400 or higher, or level 400 courses from the BSc MST and LST programmes provided that these were not part of the student’s earlier studies. All other electives have to be approved by the exam committee.
