The final project is your chance to use what you have learned from the nine courses on the programme and show off your in depth knowledge within a specific area.
It is also your chance to work independently and dive deeper into a specific subject of special interest to you.
We encourage you to consider writing your Master project in collaboration with a company in the wind energy industry. You might come up with a project idea that fits your own and the company’s interests. Furthermore, you may draw on company resources such as inspiring examples, cases, or data sets. Feel free to engage a co-supervisor from the company in the Master project.
Furthermore, you are encouraged to pair up with another participant. This will give you the opportunity to produce a longer thesis and benefit from having a partner to work with.
This course is part of the Online Master of Wind Energy.
If you want to study the course, you need to be accepted to the Master’s programme.

Finding a supervisor
You can start working on the project when you have passed the nine Master courses, and when you have an agreement with a DTU supervisor.
The supervisor may be one of the lecturers from your courses or other scientific staff from DTU. You are encouraged to find a suitable supervisor yourself. However, if you have difficulties finding a supervisor that matches your project, we will help you get in contact with the relevant person.
Usually the project period runs in parallel with a semester. However, another period can be agreed upon between you and the supervisor.
Topic and content
You are expected to choose an overall topic for your Master project based on the knowledge and experience you have gained through the nine Master courses. Once you have decided on a topic, you may start thinking about the problem statement of your thesis.
The content and specific learning objectives of the thesis will be outlined in collaboration with your supervisor[NJM1] . Furthermore, your supervisor will help you outline your project’s final problem statement. The thesis may contain a combination of theoretical studies, synthesis, modelling and analysis. However, the thesis must include elements of literature studies and criticism.
