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
  • have analytical and synthesis skills, critical sense and autonomy of judgment
  • have expressive skills both written and oral
  • know how to identify goals and perspectives for your education.

You can write the thesis in English. However, in order to use another language of the European Union, you must ask for permission from the course council. In such cases, remember to accompany the paper with a title and ample summary in Italian.
