MSc thesis guidelines

  • You can do a thesis on a theoretical topic, and it is also possible to graduate on a new design or computer program (tool).
  • The duration of the thesis project depends on the MSc curriculum that you follow: 3 quarters (45 ECTS) for Computer Engineering, Telecom and Embedded Systems, 3 quarters/1 year (45 or 60 ECTS) for MicroElectronics.
  • Your thesis work is graded on the following aspects: (1) quality of the work, (2) quantity, (3) report, (4) oral presentation and defense, (5) engineering attitude. For the highest grades (9 or 10), a clear novel contribution is essential. In that case, it is often possible to prepare a paper for a conference.
  • Your thesis work is a "project", and you are the project leader! This means that you are responsible for its progress, reporting, and regular appointments with your advisors and other experts. At the beginning, you will make together with your advisor a problem definition and work plan, so that you don't get lost.
