Final project

What it is

For admission to the master's degree exam you must have obtained all the credits required by the teaching regulation of your degree course.

The final examination consists of the discussion of an experimental thesis, written in English, about your research work carried out in the teachers' laboratories and/or in companies in the sector.

You will have to submit your thesis application at the beginning of 2° year, indicating:

  • the research structure where you want to carry out the thesis
  • your supervisor

About a month before your thesis discussion you will be assigned a co-supervisor.
Furthermore, your thesis must be consigned to the Examination Committee at least 20 days before the official session.

The thesis dissertation and the final examination will take place in two separate moments:

  1. 10 days before the official session it will be fixed an examination session in which you will have to present your work to a committee
  2. On the day of the official session, you will have to publicly discuss your work. After the presentation, the vote will be announced, in one hundred tenths, and the proclamation will be made.
