Presentation outlineTopic for MSc thesis: Influence of bottlenecks in the stationof Utrecht Centraal on pedestrian route choice•  Finding a topic•  Combination of NS + TU•  About NS stations•  About the researchMSc thesis: Influence of bottlenecks in the station of Utrecht Centraal on pedestrian route choice 3/27
  • 4. Finding a topicFinding a topic1.  Determine goal2.  What suits you?3.  How to find what suits youMSc thesis: Influence of bottlenecks in the station of Utrecht Centraal on pedestrian route choice 4/27
  • 5. Finding a topic1.  Determine your goal•  Why: to find a topic that suits you•  How: take time to thinkMe: I didn t want to struggle with my thesis L•  Have fun•  No delay•  Always know what to do•  Go for the best resultMSc thesis: Influence of bottlenecks in the station of Utrecht Centraal on pedestrian route choice 5/27
  • 6. Finding a topic2. What suits you?•  Think about courses / projects / work that you like•  Talk to different peopleMe:•  Challenging subject -> maybe PhD?•  Good result & progress -> good supervisors•  Do research that will be used in practice -> company•  Have fun, nice colleagues•  Flexibility and freedomMSc thesis: Influence of bottlenecks in the station of Utrecht Centraal on pedestrian route choice 6/27
  • 7. Finding a topic3. How to find what suits you?•  Choose the people that can help you•  Take time for orientationMe:•  Shared my goals with Prof. Hoogendoorn•  Visited 4 companies that sounded cool•  Learnt that all subjects suited me•  Chose the company that suited me bestMSc thesis: Influence of bottlenecks in the station of Utrecht Centraal on pedestrian route choice 7/27
