All students are required to write a master's thesis, which is an individual research project with a workload of 30 credits. The topic of the thesis is usually related to the student’s major, or in some special cases to the minor. The details of the thesis project are agreed upon with the supervisor who must be a professor in the Aalto University. The advisor(s) of the thesis 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.
The master’s thesis is a public document and cannot be concealed.
