Thesis Committee

In the download section of our homepage you can find three different templates for TC meetings. Please note that you will need to log in first to access the forms and do get back to us in case you forgot your password/username. As soon as you have arranged the date with your TC members, please also inform the study coordinator.

1st Template : For first meeting after submitting thesis proposal (within first 6 months of PhD). The TC members must indicate that they approve thesis proposal. Please bring this document to your first meeting and have all present TC members sign it directly.

2nd Template : For following meetings.

3rd Template to be completed in the last meeting before submitting your thesis. After a year you write a short progress report which you submit to SGBM office and to each TC member PRIOR to arranging the date for TC meeting. At this meeting you have the members sign the form and write a brief report for us and you hand in the signed form.

In case you cannot meet all three members at the same time make sure that all of them have your progress report, arrange a discussion with the missing member and have him/her sign the template.

We would appreciate it a lot if you could bear this in mind for your future meetings which would make life somehow a bit easier for us in getting things organized. Thank you very much for your help! If there are any question please don't hesitate and come back to us.
