Final project

What is

The final examination consists of the discussion, before a committee, of a paper on topics and activities carried out by you during the three-year period; it serves to ascertain your technical-scientific and professional preparation as well as to acquire knowledge useful for entering the world of work or for continuing your studies.

The effort required for the preparation of the final test should be commensurate with the number of credits allocated to the test itself.

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