In some cases, the student may have the possibility to work on the topic of a department which does not take part in the teaching of the selected specialization for which he/she shall acquire the permission of the Director of the BSc English Program of the faculty. A precondition for acquiring such permission is a certification of his/her excellent scholastic record and professional work in the selected topic.

The student shall register to Thesis project subject of the department which announced the selected topic.

5. Required knowledge The subject is based on the knowledge of the topics taught by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics.
6. Pre-requisites

7. Objectives, learning outcomes and obtained knowledge To obtain the certificate, the student must prepare a BSc thesis which should prove that the candidate can do independent engineering work, he/she can apply engineering methods, he/she is capable of understanding the task, and to interpret and analyze the chosen solution.
8. Synopsis

The topic of BSc Thesis project can be chosen from among the topics of the department of the faculty (preferably belonging to the specialization and – if it exists – the branch selected by the student).

The topic of a department, not teaching in the student’s specialization, is only acceptable if the student obtained the permission of the Director of the BSc English program of the faculty.

A topic offered by another faculty, university or external company (economic organization) can only be accepted if one of the professionally relevant heads of departments of the specialization supports it and provides a supervisor. The external supervisor, approved by the head of the department, can be an expert with a university or master (MSc) degree. When selecting the topic of BSc Thesis and preparing the thesis itself, students must make sure to avoid violating the interest of the company (economic organization) so that his/her work can be reviewed.

BSc Thesis can also be prepared with the supervision of an external consultant/supervisor at an external company (economic organization) onsite. If the student has to do an internship as well which is performed at the same company that has announced the topic of the thesis, the work regarding preparation and internship must be separated.

It is possible to hand out the same thesis topic to two or more students, but only separately, designated to names, and only if the results of the work can be separated.  In the task announcement it must be specified which part is carried out by which student, either it is independent or group work.

The student must write a statement of having written the thesis on his/her own.

In case of a common topic, it must be marked which subtask was not written independently.

9. Method of instruction Independent work with the help of a supervisor.
10. Assessment

During the study period:

BSc Thesis Project subject shall be completed during the given semester. The necessary but not sufficient condition of completing the subject is the preparation and submission of the thesis until the deadline stated in the announcement. The mark is given by the supervisor, or by the internal case of an external supervisor.

The submission of the thesis

The submission deadline of the BSc thesis is the last day of the study period.

The consultant of the department decides on the submission of the thesis. An external consultant gives a recommendation for the qualification of the submission in case a topic was announced by another faculty, university or external company (economic organization). The condition of submission concerning the content: in the thesis, the solution of all the subtasks, which were determined in the announcement and which were to be carried out independently, shall be presented. If the solution of a subtask is impossible, then the thesis can be submitted with the permission of the head of the department, but the fact and reason of the impossibility must be stated in the subsection of the subtask.

The formal requirements of the thesis:
The thesis shall be submitted:

  • in one copy in writing, in one volume with hard cover, with supplements if necessary and
  • in one copy in electronic form, according to the relevant the regulations of the faculty.
The thesis of two or more students with common topic shall be prepared in separate volumes and separate electronic copies.

The department informs the students about the preparation, submission and the defense of the thesis.

The completed thesis grade will be decided by the Final Examination Committee.
11. Recaps The thesis can be submitted in case of a serious reason until the end of the delayed completion period with the preliminary permission of the consultant.

The thesis which was not accepted by the final examination committee (qualified as a fail), shall be submitted again. The final examination committee may prescribe the correction or the repeated preparation of the thesis. A thesis can only be resubmitted once.
