Course overview

The objective of this module is to enable students to demonstrate the ability to apply theoretical and practical knowledge and skills as well as the ability to utilize professional and scientific literature in an independent manner for the purpose of solving problems related to their profession, in accordance with the degree of expertise acquired during the study programme.

During the module the student produces a thesis that is strongly anchored/linked with the practical application of knowledge. The thesis usually consists of an introduction to the problem and to the already available solutions, and from this understanding and knowledge the student is asked to demonstrate, in writing, how they would build a solution to the problem.

The thesis is produced in consultation with a selected Mentor and in accordance with the accepted thesis topic. Students will prepare the proposition of their thesis topic using the standardised form and are supported in this by their selected mentor. Once the Final Theses Committee accepts the proposal the student starts preparing their thesis. Consultations with the mentor are enabled through in-person, online communication platforms and through e-mail and other communication platforms.

The Final Theses Committee also monitors the quality of the final theses written by students under the mentorship of individual lecturers by approving the content, aims and work schedule as well as the quality of mentoring performed by the lecturers.
