Final project

What is

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

The undergraduate examination consists of the presentation of an experimental thesis, before a committee, prepared under the guidance of a thesis advisor and one or more co-rapporteurs.

The paper may be a project or research paper.

In the final examination you will have to demonstrate:

  • have developed awareness of the topics covered
