Thesis and The Final Exam

In addition to having passed all the exams, each student must carry out the Thesis activity for being admitted to the final Bachelor's Degree exam. It consists of theoretical and/or experimental work, supervised either by a Board's member or by a tenured Professor teaching some course in the Program.

The thesis can be developed either locally, in a research laboratory of the DIMES, or within an external laboratory (of another university, industry, etc.) with the cooperation of a tutor belonging to the hosting structure.

The academic tutor proposes the topic of the thesis, in accordance with his/her own teaching and/or research expertise.


Faculty Expertises

For the final exam, the student prepares a paper and then presents it to a specific Committee, composed by five Board’s members. Each student has 10 minutes to discuss his/her paper, using an appropriate number of slides.

The final grade is awarded by the apposite Committee, which assigns a score ranging from 0 to 9 points. This score is summed to the weighted average (expressed in one hundred and ten) of the grades reported in the exams.

The Committee assigns:

- up to 5 points on the basis of the final exam;

- 3 points to students who take the final exam by 31 December following the conclusion of the 3rd year from the first enrollment;

- 1 point to students who take the final exam by 31 December following the end of the 4th year from the first enrollment;

- 1 point to students who have passed at least one exam within the LLP / ERASMUS program.

The final score is rounded to the nearest integer. If the final score exceeds 110 and the Committee is unanimous, the Degree is awarded Cum Laude.
