Every master’s programme concludes with a thesis. The overall goal of this final degree project, (an important part of the educational programme), is for candidates to display the knowledge and proficiency required when working autonomously as MScs in engineering, architecture or the sciences. The master’s thesis comprises 30 credits and must be reported openly, as a written report with an oral presentation.
The learning objectives for a master’s thesis are laid out in the document linked below.
