specialization or subspecialization) is responsible for assigning the thesis
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.
The subject builds on knowledge of the fields of study at the Faculty of Electrical
Engineering and Informatics (VIK).
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.

Faculty (the department responsible for the student’s specialization or
subspecialization, if possible), with the approval of the department head.

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
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.
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.
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.

work. In case of joint thesis topics, the subtasks that were not solved
individually must be clearly highlighted.
work with guidance from the advisor.
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
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
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.

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.
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.
