The best project to finalize your path

In this page, you find information on the master thesis.

Master Thesis

33 credits are devoted to the master thesis, roughly split into 27 credits (675 hours, corresponding to about 5 months of work) for the thesis project and 6 credits (150 hours, corresponding to about one month of work) for the drafting of the thesis document. The master thesis project is carried out under the guidance of a teacher of the Master’s programme.

A thesis project is a significant work, in terms of breadth and depth, which allows you to become familiar with advanced themes in computer science. It typically leads to the development of original research results or innovative software products.

There are various ways of carrying out the thesis project:

Internal Project

The student works under the guidance of an academic supervisor, who guides him in identifying the thesis topic, developing the project and drafting the thesis.

Internal Project with Start-Up View

This is a variant of the internal project, in which the student or group of students, in addition to developing the technical aspects of the project carries out a preliminary study on evolving the project into a start-up, with the support of a partner incubator.

Project with company internship

The student carries out the thesis project, entirely or for a relevant part, in a company or in a start-up. The supervisor is complemented by a company tutor, who guides and supervises the student’s work in the company.

To stimulate thesis projects with Startup-View and Internships, the course of study organises Company-student meetings with the support of the partners.
