In normal thesis there are no clases, should we?

Maybe add: research ethics, communication, and other classes to support the thesis process

Use Fab Academy (global) + Thesis (global) + Complementary classes (local) as a shared Master program

Find out how accreditation would work in each case

Deliverables: A 10 page paper (define format: academic, journal, etc), a working prototype (preferrably tangible), an archive in the thesis repository (fabcloud with) documented work, a project website (landing page)

Combine with recitations from Fab Academy

Levels of interaction: Recitations, Tutorials (on tools or field of knowledge connected with the subjects of interest), Mentoring (interaction between researchers and mentors)

Scouting: Make a clear offer to students, negotiate a relationship with the lab
