Master's thesis

 Master's Thesis and Final Examination 

The final examination, which consists of the Master's thesis and its oral defense,  contributes 27 credit points to the overall course of study.A master's thesis embodies original work by the candidate, conducted under the supervision of a member of the Faculty of Information Engineering, Computer Science and Statistics. The thesis offers a possibility for the student to demonstrate their knowledge and their ability to deepen and apply that knowledge independently in a specific context.  


The Final Grade is calculated as a sum of the following elements:

  • Weighted average of the exam results obtained during the Master's degree (Normalized in 110)
  • Increase of 0 to 2 points based on the study success (1 point for having at least 3 exam results with honours and 1 point if the Master's degree is attained in 2 academic years.  
  • Grade from the Master's Thesis - 3 to 8 points.

To Graduate with honours a sum total of 113 points is needed.

In order to assign a 7 or 8 points for the graduation or in order to require the honour, the supervisor is supposed to name at least 15 days before the graduation session a second supervisor. This second supervisor will have to deeply evaluate the candidate's thesis and provide his/her own evaluation to the committee on the graduation day.


New procedures for Master thesis Defense

As a result of the deliberations of the I3S Faculty Board,
the CAD of Engineering in Computer Science  approved that starting from Master thesis defenses scheduled in March 2013, the Master thesis of any student belonging to Master of Science in Engineering in Computer Science and to Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics will be checked for plagiarism  through the software "Compilatio".

Forms to be submitted at the Administrative Secretary Office i3S in the main campus (scala B, 2nd floor, P.le Aldo Moro, 5) can be downloaded here by the deadline mentioned in the academic calendar.


The following forms must be delivered to the secretary office in Via Ariosto, 25:


  • Form A - Thesis' Request: this form must be filled in while getting the assignment. It's a prerequisite for the student's validation.





  • Form C - "Compilatio" anti-plagiarism verification done by the supervisor: this form must be delivered to the secretary office at least five days before the thesis' session together with a CD which must contain a PDF and Word version of the thesis.  (The cover for the CD and the form can be downloaded below)
