Procedure for the final examination

The Final Examination for the awarding of the Second-Cycle Degree consists of the presentation and discussion, before a committee of five professors, of a Dissertation characterised by innovative research or development contributions, which the students have developed in an original manner under the guidance of a Supervisor.
The dissertation can be of a theoretical, experimental or design-based nature and may also be written in English.

The procedures for the final examination are described in the Course Regulations in Articles 7, 8 and 9 (see links).

The mark awarded for the final examination varies from a minimum of 0/110 to a maximum of 7/110. The degree grade is out of 110 and rounded to the nearest whole number. It is determined by the sum of the mark for the final examination and the weighted average of the marks obtained for the course unit examinations. If this total exceeds 110/110, the committee may, by unanimous decision, award honours.
