Thesis and graduation exam
Since the student completes all the activities included in its study plan (exams, internship), it is ammitted to the graduation exam, i.e. the thesis defence. The graduation exam will be evaluated by a dedicated commision, of at least seven members, in a public session.
The thesis should present the obtained data within their general scientific context, in form of scientific/technical report. The theisis must be draw up in English, introducing an original scientific work and in detail: a) it shall introduce the general framework of the scientific work, referring to the parent literature; b) it shall give a short essay of the research outcomes. A list of the available thesis topics is available at the dedicated webpage.
The thesis has to be prepared under the tutoring of a professor/researcher of the University, whose specialization must be related to the scientific contents of the Master. In order to apply to the graduation exam, the the Internship Laboratory (CHI0028 16 CFU) must be registered (as for the other exams) by the thesis tutor. Such registartion (which is not subject to assesment, but just to approvation) has to be anticipately comunicated to the Didactic Manager.
The defence exam will consist of a 20 min presentation on the thesis, followed by 10 min of questioning from the commision.
Beginning of thesis activity communications
Before to start their thesis work, students must communicate it to the Didactic Manger through the appropriate form.
Furthermore the safety module must be compiled and presented to the Chemistry Department secretary (Via P. Giuria, 7 – ground floor) before to start any practical activity in laboratories.
In the case the student will attend its thesis period on an external structure, this module must be compiled and presented to the Job Placement office (Via Michelangelo 32).
