Final project

What it is

In order to be admitted to the degree examination, you must have obtained all the credits stipulated in the educational regulations for your degree course.

The degree examination consists of a written paper, also in English, on a subject in the field of mathematics, to be discussed in front of a committee.

The objective of the final examination is to test your ability to produce and present with clarity and mastery a written paper on advanced topics within the subject areas of mathematics.

You may supplement your work with internships and/or periods at research organisations or external companies interested in the topic of your thesis.

The degree examination comprises two stages:

  • a defence before a panel of experts
  • a concise presentation of the thesis (20 minutes) with answers to any questions
  • .
