The 4th semester is six months' research training in a laboratory or company.
Partner laboratories and companies send their topics to MESC administration. Students apply to 3 topics. Then the topics are distributed to them according to their ranking.
European students cannot apply to topics proposed by laboratories of their country of origin.
The master thesis defence
At the end of the training period (mid-September), students gather in Amiens for their master thesis defence. They are asked to present their research work in front of the jury. There is also a poster presentation.
