Writing a Meaningful Master’s gives engineering students the opportunity to contribute with practical knowledge from their studies within a long-term development framework, in the field.
What is Master with Meaning?
A Master with Meaning (MmM) is a concept which consists of a master’s thesis written with both a theoretical part and a field visit in the Global South, together with an engineer with experience in field work (a mentor). Through this process, the thesis becomes a good introduction to long-term development work for the student, while also being of use to someone; by solving specific technical problems in the field.
In collaboration with a local department in EWB Norway and an organization or company, master students have the opportunity to write a practical master’s thesis with a field visit; Master with Meaning.
In addition, the student will gain international experience that future employers will appreciate, and the opportunity to stand out from the crowd in a recruitment process.
Who can apply?
EWB Norway has local branches at several of Norway’s largest universities.
The departments are responsible for assisting the student in finding relevant and appropriate MmM theses, using their network of companies and partner organizations. In addition, the departments can help with preparations in the form of training and supervision.
How to apply
The application deadlines are March 15 for assignments with fieldwork the following autumn semester, and September 15 for assignments with fieldwork the following spring semester.
A maximum of two master students can apply for a MmM project together.
