Every programme concludes with a thesis/degree project. This is something that you write at the end of your studies and is for many the way to enter the world of work. During the work with the thesis/degree project, you get the help of an examiner and a supervisor at Chalmers.

If you choose to do your thesis/degree project in collaboration with a company, you need a responsible supervisor there as well. You will receive information about what applies to your programme from your Student Guidance Counsellor or Head of programme/Director of Master's programme.
