Guidelines for students

Poster template Attendance for all students of the master IEOR is mandatory:
  1. Specifically, in case you do a master thesis this year we ask that you register for the IEOR Industry Day and attend. Also, as part of your offical thesis defense, prepare a poster about your thesis research and present it during the event. The following are some useful guidelines and recommendations:
    • The poster explains your thesis research and tries to address the specialised public. What is the context of your study? What questions do you try to answer? What data do you have available? What methods do you (want to) use? Are there preliminary conclusions? What are the further prospects of this research?
    • Submit the poster in PDF or PowerPoint BEFORE friday 20 April to We will print it and bring it to the event on wednesday.
    • A poster template in PowerPoint is available here. This is not a mandatory template however, you can use your own visual style.
    • Discuss the content of the poster with your supervisors and get their approval before submitting the poster. If you have a non-disclosure agreement with a company, be absolutely sure to get approval from the company supervisor first.
  2. If you do the master thesis next year, you also need to register and come to the event. During the afternoon, we will give an overview of next year's thesis subjects that you can choose. You can personally meet the supervisors (Ghent University or from companies) and ask questions.

Some impressions, looking forward to next year...
