In this database you will find methods and technieques from the TPM masters; Engineering Policy Analysis (EPA), Management of Technology (MOT) and Sytems Engineering and Policy Analysis (SEPAM), as well as general methods and techniques that you can use to do your master thesis project. Methodology is a critical element of your MSc thesis project, and determines the rigor of your reserach. During your master program you learned many different methods, concepts and techniques, but you might have lost overview of what your can use in your MSc project. Therefore this website offers you the overview of your 'toolbox' the methods and techniques that your learned in your studies, and that you can potentially use to perform your MSc reserach. To choose a method we refer you to the Lemma ChoosingAMethod
. We also ask you to share your experiences in this portal; when you used a method or technique, share your tip's and insights in the comments field.
