recommended that the thesis topic is a follow-up of the Project Lab topic.
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 first semester is a review of the literature, the design of the system and
progress with the implementation in proportion to the available time.
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.
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 student shall be aware of the classified nature of the topic when it is
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.
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. In case of joint topics, it is possible
to declare only subtasks as classified. Thus only the theses completing such
subtasks will be treated as classified.
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.
the semester: midterm grade
The student passes the subject if he/she completed
the preparatory work and is ready to register for the subject M.Sc. Thesis 2.
Assessment during the semester
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
written report must be submitted 5 workdays prior to the oral report. It must span
about 30 pages.
the end of classes, students report the progress in at least 10 minutes long presentations,
at sessions held on dates previously agreed upon.
written reports must be uploaded to the thesis portal of the Faculty.
A faculty committee consisting of at least 3
thesis advisors gives a midterm grade, based on the recommendation of the
student’s advisor and by considering the following aspects:
professional value of the work;
student’s attitude towards the work and the degree of completion of the task;
evaluation of the report;
level of documentation.
Students fail if:
project was largely neglected;
task assignment was not submitted;
tasks for the semester were not completed in an acceptable quality by the date
of the report;
written report was not submitted or the oral presentation was not delivered by
the due date.
submission of the written and oral final report is possible until the end of
the supplementary assessment period.
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.
reviews and appropriately cites the literature needed to address the thesis
topic, with the guidance of the advisor.
