New rules for the assignement of the thesis
From 19 November 2019 the new methods for assigning the master's thesis are the following (the related form is attached).
To begin the degree thesis required for graduation, students must submit an assignment application to the Didactic Secretariat.
The application can be presented after having acquired at least 40 credits from the courses provided for the specific degree.
The thesis period (minimum 6 months) starts from the date the application is submitted, provided that the student meets the credit requirement.
The application must contain:
• The title of the thesis with a brief description of the topic and a bibliography.
• The name and signature of the supervisor. The supervisor must be a full professor, associate professor, university researcher or researcher with a fixed-term contract with the University of Milan who carries out teaching activities at one of the study courses of the Didactic College of Computer Science and Technology or which belongs to the Computer Science Department. .
• The names of any advisors. Professors and researchers from other universities, as well as experts with proven scientific and professional qualifications, can also be advisors.
• Attached: a printout of the career with an indication of the exams taken and the credits acquired.
The applications will be examined by the Thesis Commission approximately once a month. If the 40 credits' requirement is not respected on the application submission date, the application will be refused and the period elapsed from the submission of the application will not be computable for the duration of the thesis. The Commission may also ask the student for additions or clarifications regarding the other points envisaged in the application.
Temporarily, for the Master's Degree in Computer Science (F94), until 31/12/2020 students will be able to start the thesis, even though they have not acquired the required 40 credits, they have acquired at least 18 credits among the characteristic teachings.
