Thesis and graduation requirements

Pre-degree certificate:

The University issues the pre-degree certificate to students who have fulfilled the curriculum by completing the required practical courses, internship, and have earned the required number of credits (except writing the degree thesis). The pre-degree certificate does not provide qualification or vocational qualification.


At the end of the programme, a degree thesis has to be submitted. The Faculty approves the topic, prescribes content requirements and also provides the general considerations for evaluation and the deadline for submission. The thesis has to be worked out under the guidance of an appointed teacher (supervisor) and must be defended in front of the Final Examination Board.


At the end of the programme, students will complete a 12 week internship at a company of their own choice where they will have the opportunity to apply their theoretical and practical knowledge in a real, corporate environment.

Final examination:

The final examination is an exam designed to test and assess students’ knowledge, skills and abilities that are required for awarding the diploma. Having acquired the pre-degree certificate, students can register for the final examination. The final examination consists of two parts: the defense of the degree thesis and an oral examination.
