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 dissertation examination consists of the performance of an experimental thesis carried out at a university research laboratory or an external institution that has an agreement with UniGe.

During the performance of the thesis (38 CFUs) you will address the problems of experimental research using advanced equipment and methodologies.

The final examination consists of:

  1. The preparation of a written dissertation concerning the thesis activity, where all aspects of the research will be explained, from the state of the art, experimental procedures, data processing and discussion, and the conclusions reached.

  2. A pre-graduation seminar lasting about 30-40 minutes, concerning the thesis activity, to be held about a week before the graduation session, before the Fixed Graduation Committee. At the end of the presentation, the committee may ask you questions, seek clarification of experimental procedures, analysis of results, and conclusions. On the basis of the presentation, discussion, and written dissertation, the Commission will assign a score that will be added to the weighted average of the grades in hundredths.

  3. A presentation of the thesis work, shorter (15 minutes), to be given in the graduate session, during which you will briefly and in a more informative manner state the motivation and scientific context of the work, the most important results, and the conclusions you have reached.
