The final examination for the Second-cycle degree consists of a major design or analysis activity in the field of telecommunications engineering. This activity must be agreed upon with a professor/instructor, set within the framework of one of the planned course units or other training activities, developed by the student with a significant personal contribution and may possibly be conducted in part as part of an internship or placement. This activity is followed by the drafting of a dissertation and its discussion before a special committee set up in accordance with the teaching regulations. In the final examination, the candidate must demonstrate mastery of the topics, the ability to work independently and adequate communication skills.
