Master Thesis and final mark
In order to graduate you must defend your Master Thesis in front of the Academic Board in the graduation session you have enrolled in.
The final mark of your Diploma is awarded on a scale 60-110. The final mark will be calculated considering:
- your GPA out of 30 converted on a scale out of 110. This will be your starting mark before the Thesis defence in front of the Academic Board.
- The Academic Board will evaluate your Thesis defence on a scale 0-12 points. The points will be added to your GPA converted on a scale out of 110
Ex. with a GPA of 27 out of 30, your starting mark will be 99 out of 110. If you receive 8 points from the Evaluation Committee your final mark will be 107/110.
