Final thesis

The final thesis consists of the development of a  project in the field of Telecommunications carried out under the supervision of a Department Professor (the Advisor). A significant original contribution from the student is required. The thesis is then presented and discussed in front of a Final Examination Committee.

Some professors may offer the opportunity to carry out the thesis work in a company. If you wish to try this one, please contact the professor to check which opportunities are available. You may alternatively find yourself  a company wishing to take you for a thesis internship: then you have to find a professor in your master course who play the role of internal advisor and liaison with the company. The necessary bureaucratic forms  for starting an internship in a company can be found here. The beginning of the internship can be at any time before the deadlines mentioned here below.
