Degree Thesis Assignment

The student who plans to undertake the final degree exam has two options: 

  1. Traineeship and thesis

    1. Undertaking a traineeship at one of the Research Laboratories at the University, under the guidance of a supervisor (a scholar/researcher from the Department of Computer Sciences) and possibly an assistant supervisor (a scholar/researcher from Ca’ Foscari or another University). The activity consists in the study and/or development of a project.
    2. Preparing a written piece of work within the frame of the activity studied and the project undertaken, distilling the results and outlining the re-entry into the applied environment and/or research.

  2. Internship and thesis

    1. Undertaking an internship at a company or firm of the territory, under the guidance of a representative of the company or firm (assistant supervisor), who will also observe the adequacy of the work carried out in the student’s formative project. The activity consists in the study and/or development of a project.
    2. Preparing a written piece of work within the frame of the activity studied and the project undertaken, distilling the results and outlining the re-entry into the applied environment and/or research. 

The companies or firms that want to offer internships should draw up a specific Convention and complete the Formative Project in accordance with the available modules on the Ca’ Foscari Internship Services website. Furthermore, the supervisor should periodically verify the work carried out by the student, and follow the same procedure for the drafting of the written work.

The procedure to find an internship is published on the specific Internship and Placement page.

Companies and firms that want to offer internships will find all the relevant information published on the specific Internship and Placement page.

University regulation

Degree Programme Regulations

Regulations for the Final Degree Exam

Class: L-31 Science and Information Technology
Class: 26 Science and Information Technology

The present regulations discipline the organizational aspects of the final degree exam, in the sense that is expected from Art12. Of the Ministerial Degree 22nd October 2004, n.270 and the Didactic Regulations of the University. From the summer session of 2012/2013, the regulation is extended to the Bachelor Degree Programme from the Order 509/99.

The final degree programme is articulated through the development of a placement or internship activity and the subsequent piece of written work that synthesizes the results of the activity carried out.

The characteristics of the differing activities are indicated are as follows:

Traineeship or Internship

  • For students enrolled from 2011– the internship is worth 6 ECTS – 150 hours (Active code for study plan: CT0130)
  • For students in the academic years 2008, 2009, 2010, the internship is worth 12 ECTS – 300 hours (Active code for study plan: CT0128)

The placement requires study and/or development of a project at one of the Research Laboratories at the University, under the guidance of a supervisor. The internship requires study and/or development of a project  at a company or firm of the territory. The subject of the activity must be previously approved by a scholar (supervisor) and must be overseen by a representative of the external company or firm (assistant supervisor). The activities should be documented in a precise way by the assistant supervisor. Whether for the placement or for the internship, 1 ECT corresponds to 25 hours.  

Thesis

Total ECTS: 6

Framing the study activity and the project carried out on the placement or internship, distilling the results and outlining the re-entry into the applied environment and/or research.

The final degree exam mark is based on the evaluation of the written work. 

More information on the final degree exam is published on the Degree Exam page. In particular, information on admission into the Degree Exam, procedure and timetable for presenting the written work, procedure and timetable for collection, and bonus points is published.

NB: the study plan of the 509/99 system (preceding 2008) requires an internship of 3 ECTS (code  C62999).
