Writing assignment

In your study programme 7.5 EC, which corresponds to five weeks full-time study, are reserved for a literature study (writing assignment).

Aim

The main aim of the literature study is to learn how to perform an adequate literature search on a certain topic and how to interpret the literature in such a way that an objective view of the current status of the research topic is obtained. The study should result in a thesis. The target audience of your literature study consists of researchers who are familiar with the field of medical imaging, but who are not experts on that particular topic (for instance, your fellow students).

Topic

You are free to select a topic that interests you (provided it is relevant to the Master’s programme) but the topic of the literature study must be clearly distinct from the one of your research projects.
