Final project

What is

For admission to the graduate examination, you must have completed all the credits required by the educational regulations of your degree program.

The undergraduate examination consists of discussion, in front of a committee, of a report on:

  1. a design activity
  2. conducting experiments
  3. developing methodologies or operational tools of bioengineering interest.

The activity:

  • will be carried out under the supervision of a faculty member from the Polytechnic School, DIBRIS, or a member of your course of study
  • may take place either entirely at the speaker's laboratory or in collaboration with another research institution, health care facility, or company
  • comprising a commitment of 625 hours (25 CFUs)
  • should be broken down into three phasi:
    1. Thesis Project: performance of a theoretical and/or practical and/or experimental activity
    2. Dissertation:writing a written paper describing the objectives, the activity performed and the results obtained
    3. Dissertation Examination: public discussion of the paper.

The objective of the dissertation is to ascertain your:

  • preparation
  • ability to expound and discuss a technical-professional topic
  • ability to analyze, elaborate and communicate.

The module called Research methodology (2 CFU) includes integrative activities related to the dissertation project. In addition to providing you with the skills and tools necessary to develop and present a research topic, the module involves putting these skills into practice in your Dissertation Project, including framing the problem with respect to the state of the art, gathering an essential bibliography, and defining and presenting a work plan for achieving your intended goals.
