Common Part

Tracks for career preparation:
- General, Research, Climate change, Educational: choose appropriate option in Academic Master Cluster
- Entrepreneurship: restrictions on internship and Academic Master Cluster (see http://www.wageningenur.nl/en/article/MSc-Track-Entrepreneurship.htm).
RO-1: choose either RO-1A, RO-1B, RO-1C or RO-1D:
- RO-1A: General + entrepreneurial track (restrictions for entrepreneurial track): if this track is selected, choose YMC-60809 and choose 3 credits worth of Modular Skills Training courses (MOS)
- RO-1B: Research track
- RO-1C: Climate change track
- RO-1D: Educational track: Dutch speaking students with (1a) a BSc degree BSW, (1b) with a completed minor education, (2) taking specialization A or B, may obtain an ‘eerstegraads lesbevoegdheid’ in Physics by combining the MEE programme with a programme at Radboud University (see https://www.wur.nl/docentvo). Choose YWU70812 and consult your study adviser for further information.

RO-2: These data science courses are optional. Select these courses only in consultation with your study adviser. Base your choice on prior knowledge, MEE specialisation and thesis subject.
