Students are required to complete a master's thesis, which is a research assignment with a workload corresponding to 30 credits. The thesis is written on a topic usually related to the student's major and agreed upon between the student and a professor who specializes in the topic of the thesis. The supervisor of the thesis must be a professor in the University, whereas the instructor(s) must have at least a master’s degree.
Master’s thesis work includes a seminar presentation or equivalent presentation. The student is also required to write a maturity essay related to the master’s thesis. Students are encouraged to take the course TU-E6080 Master’s Thesis Seminar (1-2 cr) (as a part of elective studies) to get support in the thesis writing throughout the whole Master’s Thesis process.
The master’s thesis is a public document and cannot be concealed.
