EEMCS Graduation Policy [MSc]


The MSc graduation policy has been made under the authority of the Board of Examiners in order to harmonize the different graduation practices at the 5 EEMCS MSc programmes. This policy documents the definitions, objectives, procedures, starting requirements and the assessment criteria of a Master thesis. It is meant for different users:

  • for the student and supervisor: to get an answer on the what, when and how questions
  • for the members of the graduation committee: to know what criteria are to be used to grade the thesis
  • for the members of Board of Examiners: to monitor thesis grades and procedures, in order to guarantee that final qualifications are met in a reliable and valid way.

On the Blackboard site EEMCS Teachers checklists are published for thesis advisor, graduation committee

and Board of Examiners, as well as questionnaires for thesis advisors to evaluate the supervision.
