To achieve this goal, the Dissertation subject is designed for students to plan and execute a research-based project in the area of Neuromorphic Engineering. The main task in the year-long 80 credit point dissertation subject is an academic research paper that meets publishing standards and is peer-reviewed by external reviewers (getting the article published on a journal is not a completion requirement to the unit). The students shall be part of regular International Center for Neuromorphic Systems (ICNS) interactions, and benefit from supervisors in a discursive setting as the candidate makes progress.
