Getting a master degree without writing a thesis?

In a typical master’s degree program, students are required to write and submit a final thesis. In the GIP-TRIAD program, instead of writing a thesis, students are expected to write and submit a comprehensive report of their activities in research and development (R&D) and society in the field of food and health during their two-year study in three different countries. This comprehensive report follows an academic structure similar to the one of a master’s thesis, with a summary of research, general background and aims, details of implementation, general consideration for future outlook, and reference sections, but is much less complex and laborious to write than a typical thesis. The student focuses on the proposal for R&D, business plan and contribution to society rather than on previous results in the field when writing the comprehensive report.
