The final test consists of a discussion of a written dissertation (thesis),to the nominated Degree Commission, worked out individually with the support of one or more supervisors: among the supervisors, there should be at least one teacher of the Polytechnic School and/or of the Department of Civil, Chemical and Environmental Engineering.

The thesis may consist of either a project or a monographic research (theoretical or experimental) consistent with the subjects of the Master's degree.

The thesis should reveal the student's ability in relation to research and/or applicative issues.

The thesis should also reveal:

  • adequate preparation in the disciplines characterizing the Master's degree
  • correct use of sources and bibliography
  • knowledge of a language of the European Union, with particular reference to technical-scientific terminology
  • systematic and argumentative skills
