General information

The Secod-cycle degree in Food Science and Technology is obtained by passing the final examination, which consists of the discussion of a thesis with a high content, usually experimental, on an original research topic developed during the training period.
Internship and final examination are therefore interconnected so that the student can acquire further operational skills by developing original research, but also the ability to organise the results obtained in a written report (dissertation) and to present and critically discuss them in the final examination. The internship activity is therefore an integral part of the final examination in a synergetic and joint educational pathway.
The conduct and discussion of the Second-cycle degree thesis is the subject of the 'Rules for the conduct and discussion of the Second-cycle degree thesis in Food Science and Technology', which we enclose herewith.
For the procedures and deadlines for submitting the thesis and abstract, please follow the instructions given in the notice published for each graduation session outlining the requirements and deadlines.
NB: The thesis and abstract must be deposited in Esse3, so there is no need to send anything by e-mail to the Academic office or the student registry office.
