List of departmental coordinators
Students who apply for thesis project, research or any other project work have to find a supervisor for their project before their arrival and have their supervisor's written declaration. If no such written approval is acquired by the students from a supervisor prior to their arrival, there is no possibility to do it during mobility. Thesis/research/final projects have to be agreed upon always prior to arrival only, i.e. in the written DECLARATION of a relevant supervisor to be attached to the online application. To make the necessary prior arrangements please contact the relevant faculty coordinator (https://www.kth.bme.hu/en/oie/contact/).
