Final project

What is

To be admitted to the final examination, you must have regularly attended the educational activities and earned the credits prescribed by the regulations.

The final examination consists of a project test that ascertains your technical and scientific preparation acquired during the course of study.

The project consists of group work and has a ship as its theme.

In the second semester of the third year you will be placed within a group of about four or five students from your own course and assigned a project theme.

You will be supervised by a team of about ten lecturers, each an expert in a specific subject of the course of study, and your paper will then be evaluated by this group of lecturers and the chosen lecturer.

The final exam concludes with a discussion of the paper before a committee, possibly followed by questions from the committee.


The speakers must include at least one faculty member from the Polytechnic School and/or the relevant department.
