Final project

What is

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

The final examination consists of the discussion, before a committee, of a paper on a topic covered during your course of study and may involve practical laboratory activities and/or internship.

The paper may consist of:

  • critical discussion of scientific literature
  • critical presentation of experimental activities


The choice of the content of the work should be made at least three months before the course is to be held and with the assistance of a tutor, who is assigned by the LSC Board from among the lecturers of the course itself and agrees with you on the topic.
