Treball final de màster TFM

Què és una tesi de máster o Treball Final de Màster-TFM? Una tesi de màster és un treball de recerca original escrit sota la direcció d'un director amb experiència científica. Tots els estudiants realitzaran una tesi de màster que anomenem Treball de Fi de Màster-TFM (30 ECTS). Generalment el TFM es basa  en un projecte de recerca experimental realitzat en un dels grups de recerca que consten en la llista d’aquesta pàgina web. Un cop finalitzat el màster, els estudiants poden estar interessats en continuar investigant, per exemple, en un programa de doctorat (PhD), o com a investigadors.

Com fer  el TFM? En primer lloc cal esmentar que aprendreu a planificar un projecte de recerca i triar els mètodes adequats per realitzar els experiments i analitzar els resultats. Escriureu la vostra tesi com si es tractés d’una publicació científica, descrivint, analitzant i discutint críticament els vostres resultats en el context de la literatura científica sobre el tema. La tesi escrita us servirà per demostrar que sou capaços de pensar científicament, que coneixeu la metodologia i el tema de la vostra investigació. La tesi escrita és un exercici clau per desenvolupar habilitats en la gestió de projectes i la comunicació científica escrita.

On trobar els laboratoris per fer el TFM? A continuació trobareu una llista de laboratoris que podeu aplicar. Veureu un breu títol del treball, un enllaç a la pàgina web del grup de recerca i el nom del supervisor. Si decidiu unir-vos a aquest grup per a la vostra tesi de màster, escriviu un correu electrònic al supervisor indicat.
