Common Part

RO-1 – RO- 2: Choose 1 cluster - If RO-1 is selected, choose YMC60809 and choose at least 3 credits worth of Modula Skills Training courses (MOS). Next to a selection of Modular Skills Training courses (MOS), you can also select CPT30503 Data Science Ethics to take at least 3 credits; more up to 6 credits is allowed.
- if RO-2 is selected, note that YWU-60312 has specific prerequisites and is to be planned after the MSc thesis.
RO-3: Choose either an internship or a second thesis of at least 24 credits. In general students with a professional Bachelor degree should opt for a second thesis, while students with an academic Bachelor degree should opt for an internship.
The FQD internship is specifically linked to specialization D and F.
