Thesis/Final Project

Bachelor's and master's degree procedure

Exceptional procedure in compliance with the state of alert and the measures approved for the prevention and control of COVID-19.

1

Do you have an idea for a project?

You can make a proposal or search for a proposal from a lecturer or research group.

Find a tutor for yourself.

2

Preparing a project sheet

In the project sheet you will have to explain what you will do during your thesis/final project. Check the different periods in which you can hand in your sheet.

You can find the bachelor's thesis/dissertation sheet and master’s degree thesis/dissertation sheet in the specific documents for each degree in the student information and documents section.

Take into account that:

  • final project/thesis proposals (sheet) will have to be emailed in PDF format when you start the final project/thesis and, by latest, during the period before the one you intend to defend it in. These proposal sheets can be signed digitally or their signatures can be scanned. Where neither of these possibilities is feasible, an e-mail will be accepted where it states the student’s authorship of the project sheet and the tutor's acceptance to tutor that student. Once duly signed, the project sheet will have to be emailed, as previously stated, to (tf@eps.udg.edu).
  • You will have to indicate some guidance dates of when you plan to start and submit your thesis/dissertation. If you are ultimately unable to defend your final project/thesis on the dates provided for, you will not need to submit a new proposal.
  • If there is an express request from a company or third parties involved in the thesis/dissertation that requires the protection of project content, this can be considered confidential. In these cases, you need to request confidentiality by marking the corresponding sections of the project sheet with a cross and attach a sheet justifying the reasons why your thesis/dissertation must remain confidential.
3

Thesis/dissertation committee

Should each study final project/thesis Committee for each study, which will have reviewed the presented proposals, consider an amendment necessary, you will be informed of this by email. You will have 3 days to re-submit your proposal, duly amended, sent to the same email address. The Committee also decides whether the final project/thesis TF confidentiality requests, which will be stricter for this period, are accepted.

Once the proposal is accepted by the Committee, it is valid for two years. Once this time has passed, consult your Coordinator to find out if you can continue with the same thesis/dissertation or if you need to submit a new proposal.

4

You can then begin your project

You can start your project as soon as you receive approval from the Final Project/Thesis Committee. Remember to ask your tutor, other professors and the technical office for your course to sign the relevant follow-up sections on the project sheet.

As long as this procedure is valid, these signatures will have to be a digital or scanned; whether neither option is feasible, an e-mail from the lecturers monitoring the project will be accepted, as stated above.

5

Submitting your thesis/dissertation

When you have the finished your thesis/dissertation and your tutor has authorised you to submit it, you will be able to submit the work if you fulfil the requirements laid out in the regulations.

There are three periods (February, June and September) in which you can submit your thesis/dissertation, each with a delivery deadline. Any project submitted outside this deadline will go into the next period.

Important:

  1. As students you are responsible for the information that you are sending. If all the documentation requested (see below) is not received it will not be possible to defend the final project presentation.
  2. The day established on the web for handing in. Final project presentations will not be accepted outside of this calendar.

 

Bear in mind the documents you will have to deliver in PDF format when you make your submission:

CONFIDENTIAL works (the material handed in by the student will be destroyed once the master's thesis has been defended):

  • 1 full copy of the final project must be saved on the student's cloud platform (google drive, dropbox o similar...) and shared with your course coordinator.
  • The final project sheet with the authorisation signed by the tutor for making the deposit, page 3 of the sheet (digital or scanned signature, and where neither of these options is feasible, an e-mail from the tutor will be accepted), which must be sent by e-mail to tf@eps.udg.edu.
  • If your course requires it, you must first go through the "Follow-up by other teachers" and/or "Follow-up documentation (Technical office)", page 2 of the sheet (digital or scanned signature and, if none of these possibilities is feasible, an e-mail from one of the responsible signatories will be accepted), which must be sent by e-mail to tf@eps.udg.edu.
  • The confidentiality sheet, duly signed by the coordinator / company or institution, which must be sent by e-mail to tf@eps.udg.edu.
  • Fill in the Register of compulsory final projects that you will find in the Moodle for the subject.

 

NON confidential works:

  • One complete copy of the final project (remember to include the summary of 2 to 5 pages), which must be saved at https://eps.udg.edu/entrega-tf
  • The final project sheet with the authorisation signed by the tutor for making the deposit, page 3 of the sheet (digital or scanned signature, and where neither of these options is feasible, an e-mail from the tutor will be accepted), which must be sent by e-mail to tf@eps.udg.edu
  • If your course requires it, you must first go through the "Follow-up by other teachers" and/or "Follow-up documentation (Technical office)", page 2 of the sheet (digital or scanned signature and, if none of these possibilities is feasible, an e-mail from one of the responsible signatories will be accepted), which must be sent by e-mail to tf@eps.udg.edu.
  • Signed authorisation to publish your final project sheet in the DUGI (*) (the UdG's Digital Repository of Documents) (digital or scanned signature, and where neither of these options is feasible, an e-mail from the student will be accepted), which must be sent by e-mail to tf@eps.udg.edu.
  • Fill in the Register of compulsory final projects that you will find in the Moodle for the subject.

(*) Only qualified theses/dissertations with a mark equal to or greater than a B 8 will be available to view by the public on DUGI. Others will not be publicly accessible.

Bachelor's thesis and master's thesis defence and assessment online

When bachelor's or master's theses cannot be defended online, they will be coordinated synchronously at the Polytechnic School.

On the day and at the time assigned, the examination board chosen by the projects committee will meet the student for their bachelor's or master's thesis presentation and defence. Bachelor's thesis and master's thesis defence times are published in advance on the School's website, in the examination boards section.Defences are public. Any member of the community will be able to find out about the works being defended there, their author, the members of the examination board and the date and the time of the defence. People will be able to request to attend such defences as members of the public, except where the projects are classed as confidential.

The members of the each bachelor's or master's thesis defence's examination board will have access to the report, before the student gives their presentation and defence. The presentation and the defence will be made at the same time by videoconference. Consult exceptional procedures.

The examination board will be able to ask questions directly which the student will have to answer directly. The debate may be recorded on video and kept as evidence.

Once the defence and the debate have finished, the members of the examination board will deliberate on the qualification and the final grade will be issued. This deliberation will be made synchronously but solely in the presence of the examination board's members. The grades of the works will be published in their corresponding student's achievement record, with records of the defence and video recording kept as evidence.

Guidance videos

Before you begin, we recommend that you watch a series of short videos: Pau, a Computer Engineering student, has to do a project and does not know where to start...

Regulations

You will find the current regulations for bachelor's degree and master's degree theses/dissertations in the Rules and guidelines section.
