The final examination focuses on the discussion of an original researched thesis written by the student under the guidance of a supervisor, and possibly an assistant appointed by the supervisor. This assistant supervisor is chosen from another Institute within the same Examination Panel.

For the dissertation the onus is on the student to define, research and develop a paper that is the culmination of his/her professional and scientific education.

The dissertation will be assessed on the following criteria: level of in-depth study of the academic content, critical analysis and accuracy of the methodology adopted for the development of the topic.

The discussion of dissertation is public. For presentation purposes, the student must use a predefined template for the slides so that a maximum of 10 charts are used, essentially relating the experimental data and their discussion.

For admission to the final exam students must have attained all the credits from the official and supplementary educational activities as stated in their study plan, including those gained from the Internship.
