Master's thesis work

Every master's programme is completed with a master's thesis work. The overall goal of the concluding degree project, which is an important part of the education programme, is to display knowledge and capability required for independent work as a Master of Science in Engineering, Architecture or Master of Science. The master's thesis must be reported openly, in the form of a written report with an oral presentation and comprises 30 credits. The learning objectives for a master's thesis are formulated in the document below.

Management of degree projects and bachelor's theses 

  • Degree projects and bachelor's theses that require resources on campus (labs, workshops, etc.) can be carried out on campus after the supervisor has carried out the usual risk assessment. Practical supervision may take place on campus. Theoretical supervision must take place at a distance. The need for an exemption from attendance on campus is discussed with the supervisor as the structure of the bachelor or degree project affects if it is possible.
  • Degree projects and bachelor’s theses that are to be carried out at a company can continue as long as the company permits it. If the company does not permit the thesis to be carried out with them or at their premises, contact your thesis supervisor.​ 
  • Presentations for degree projects and bachelor’s theses shall be carried out digitally if they are scheduled for study period 4. For presentations during examination week, a decision has not yet been made, but it is recommended that they also be carried out digitally. 
  • To be able to document that you have passed the compulsory elements of your degree projects or bachelor’s theses, you must create a "digitalt arbetskort" (for 15 credits) or a "Work Card" (for 30 and 60 credits). Instructions can be found in Canvas​​.​​
