In order to obtain the M.Sc. degree, the student
must write a thesis. The thesis must prove that the candidate is capable of
working independently as an engineer, is proficient in and can apply
engineering methods, can interpret the task assignment, as well as evaluate and
analyze the chosen solution.
The goal of
the second semester is to complete the implementation and to write the thesis.
topic can be chosen from the topics offered by one of the departments of the
Faculty (the department responsible for the student’s specialization, if
possible), with the approval of the department head. In the second semester,
the thesis work started in the first semester shall be continued. The topic can
be changed only if the student re-registers for M.Sc. Thesis 1 in the second
semester (with ‘grade change’ re-registration). In this case, the task
assignment should once again correspond to 30 credits.
offered by another faculty, university, or a company (business organization)
can be accepted only if the head of a department competent in the topic
supports it and assigns a departmental advisor. The external advisor must be an
expert with a university diploma or master’s (M.Sc.) degree and must be
approved by the department head. The thesis topic shall be chosen and the
thesis shall be written so that the work of the candidate can be evaluated
without releasing information that violates the interests of the company
(business organization). In exceptional cases, leading companies and business
organizations in research and development can offer classified thesis topics. The
department must obtain permission to that before registration starts for M.Sc. Thesis
can be carried out abroad as well. In this case, the topic and the tasks shall
be confirmed in advance by a department competent in the field, similarly to
the case of industrial theses. The thesis must meet the Hungarian requirements.
The foreign advisor must write a short report about the candidate’s work and
the thesis, and this report shall be submitted to the final examination
committee. The thesis written abroad needs to be defended at the final
examination, just like theses written in Hungary.
Hungarian, the thesis may be written in any language of instruction at BME (English, French, German, and Russian), depending upon the approval of
the departmental advisor.
It is not
possible to offer joint topics for two or more students in the second semester.
must include the student’s statement that it reports the results of his/her own
work. In case of joint thesis topics, the subtasks that were not solved
individually must be clearly highlighted, considering that it is not possible
to assign joint tasks for the second semester of the thesis work.
work with guidance from the advisor.
a. During the semester: midterm grade
The advisor continuously monitors the
scheduling, the work progress, and the contribution of the student. The student
must regularly report the work progress to the departmental advisor, even if
the work is carried out outside the department.
The submission of the thesis is not a condition
for passing the subject. The subject is graded by the faculty member responsible
for theses at the department, based on the recommendation of the departmental
The student passes if the preparations for the
thesis were carried out during the semester and presumably the thesis can be
submitted without further guidance from the advisor.
b. Submission of the thesis
The deadline for submitting the thesis is the
last day of classes in the semester in which the student wishes to defend the
The thesis must be approved by the departmental
advisor prior to submission. In case of a thesis topic offered by another
faculty, university, or by a company (business organization), the external
advisor makes a recommendation for approval. Criterion for submission with
respect to the contents of the thesis: the thesis must present the solution for
each individual subtask in the task assignment. In exceptional cases, when the
solution of a subtask becomes unfeasible, the thesis can be submitted by the
approval of the head of department and with a declaration of unfeasibility and
its reasons in the subchapter corresponding to the subtask.
Formal requirements: The thesis must be
1 copy in print, in a single hardcover volume, with appendices (if necessary),
1 electronic copy, according to the corresponding policy of the Faculty.
Two or more students working on the same thesis
topic shall submit their theses in separate volumes and in separate electronic
The thesis is public unless the thesis topic is
declared classified by the dean. In such cases, the thesis becomes public 3
years after the successful final examination. The administrator of the thesis
portal of the Faculty is responsible for making the theses publicly available. Information
about the writing, submission, and defense of the thesis is provided to the
student by the department when assigning the thesis topic.
If this subject was successfully completed, the
final examination committee grades the thesis.

supplementary assessments. In case of a submission later than that, the final
examination is postponed to the next final examination period.

such cases, the student shall register for the subject again in the next

re-submitted. The final examination committee can request either the correction
or the rewrite of the thesis. A Master’s thesis can be re-submitted only once.
The dean decides about the conditions and the earliest deadline for
re-submission, based on the opinion of the department.
is carried out under the guidance of either a departmental advisor or an
external advisor. In case of external advisors, a departmental advisor must
also be assigned to the thesis work. Departmental advisors are full-time or
part-time faculty members, research scientists, teachers (master teacher,
teacher of engineering, teacher of technology, teacher of business, practical
instructor), engineers, doctoral candidates, and Ph.D. students; external
advisors must be experts with a university diploma or master’s (M.Sc.) degree
and must be approved by the department head. An external advisor is necessary
only if the topic was not offered by the department or if it is beyond the
expertise of all members of the department.
