    The student’s host department (usually, the department responsible for the student’s specialization or subspecialization) is responsible for assigning the thesis topic.

    In order to get assigned to a thesis topic offered by another department of the Faculty, the student must obtain both the release notice of the host department and the adoption notice of the other department.

    5. Required knowledge

    The subject builds on knowledge of the fields of study at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics (VIK).

    7. Objectives, learning outcomes and obtained knowledge

    In order to obtain the B.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.

    8. Synopsis

    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 or subspecialization, if possible), with the approval of the department head.

    A topic 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).

    With the guidance of an external advisor, the thesis work can be conducted at the premises of a company (business organization). If the student must complete an internship for the degree and was an intern at the company (business organization) offering the thesis topic, then the work serving as the basis of the thesis and the work to complete the internship must be well separated.

    Thesis work 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.

    Besides 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.

    Two or more students can work on a joint thesis topic (with separate task assignments for each), provided that the work and the results of each contributor can be unambiguously separated. In the task assignment, tasks to be solved individually, as well as those to be solved by other students working on the joint topic needs to be clearly stated.

    The thesis 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.

    9. Method of instruction

    Independent work with guidance from the advisor.

    10. Assessment


    a. During the semester: midterm grade

    The Bachelor’s Thesis subject needs to be completed in one specific semester. The necessary, but not sufficient condition for passing the subject is the submission of the thesis by the deadline stated in the thesis task assignment. The advisor (the departmental advisor, in case of being assigned both an external and departmental advisor) grades the thesis.

    b. Submission of the thesis

    The deadline for submitting the thesis is the last day of classes in the semester.

    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 submitted

    ·         in 1 copy in print, in a single hardcover volume, with appendices (if necessary), and

    ·         in 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 copies.

    Information about the writing, submission, and defense of the thesis is provided to the student by the department when assigning the thesis topic.

    The final examination committee grades the thesis that was written as a result of completing this subject.


    11. Recaps

    In well-justified cases, the thesis can be submitted until the end of the week for supplementary assessments.

    Theses not accepted by the final examination committee (graded to fail) must be re-submitted. The final examination committee can request either the correction or the rewrite of the thesis. A Bachelor’s thesis can be re-submitted only once. The dean decides about the conditions and the earliest deadline for re-submission, based on the recommendation of the department.

    12. Consultations

    Thesis work 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. An external advisor must be an expert with a university diploma or master’s (M.Sc.) degree and must be approved by the department head.

    13. References, textbooks and resources

    The student reviews and appropriately cites the literature needed to address the thesis topic, with the guidance of the advisor.
