Research Proposal for Master’s Degree
Master’s-level research proposals are submitted for the approval of both the research subject and the advisor. Graduates of four-year bachelor’s programs are generally required to submit their proposals within two semesters of having started their degree, while graduates of three-year bachelor’s programs are required to submit them within three semesters. In some cases, the proposal can be submitted as part of the registration process.
We recommended that graduate students utilize the first semester mandatory courses as an opportunity to broaden their horizons and explore potential subjects of study (and that they continue to do so until they submit their research proposals). In parallel, students should contact potential advisors and learn more about their specific requirements, and gather information about potential research topics. You can find a list of faculty and their research interests here.
The process of securing an advisor and writing a proposal can take several months. Hence, we do not recommend pushing off the search for an advisor until the submission deadline is approaching. The advisor should be a member of the computer science faculty (in unusually exceptional cases, you can consult with the coordinator ahead of time).
The research proposal should include:
The proposal should be between 2 and 10 pages in length, as per your advisor’s instructions.
Attach a separate page detailing the name of the topic in Hebrew and English
Most advisors require that the proposals be written in the LaTex font in English.
Please Note: Your proposal must be approved by the department, and should be submitted to the department roughly a week before being submitted to the graduate school.
Please send a digital version of your research proposal (in PDF format) to the graduate studies coordinator via email.
If one of your advisors is not a faculty member, please ask that s/he send a copy of his/her resume, in PDF format, to the graduate studies coordinator.
