Master's thesis / research

| Next Defense DAY | Tuesday August 24th 2021 | Wednesday September 1st 2021


5th module of the 2nd year for the Master’s thesis

The Master's thesis (40 ECTS) consists of a personal research project. It is due, in principle, at the end of the 4th semester. This project is a logical next step following the teaching modules. It must be realised in the chosen orientation. One of the instructors of the compulsory courses of the first year serves in general as a master thesis supervisor. An instructor of the faculty can also be named Master thesis supervisor with the agreement of the Scientific Committee who appoints one of its members as a co-supervisor (rapporteur).

The Master’s thesis module and the 40 ECTS credits are validated if the grade, based upon the quality of the research, the quality of the written thesis and the oral defence is equal to or greater than 4.00.
