Graduating / master’s graduation thesis
The master’s graduation thesis (12 CFU) is preferably an individual work, supervised by one ICAD professor (tutor), possibly with the help of a co-tutor. It has to be written and defended in English against a committee of faculty members. The master’s graduation thesis includes:
- a written scientific report (full text);
- ten A0 panels.
To ease presentation and discussion, a power-point presentation is recommended.
In case of multiple authorship, the design work is proportionally increased and subdivided among the candidates (e.g. 2 candidates = 20 A0 panels, 2 models).
The candidate critically presents and analyses her/his original design work experience concerning a specific topic agreed and developed with a supervisor/s (tutor and co-tutor). The evaluation of the master’s graduation thesis depends on:
- the weighted average of the marks got at the exams (66-110 points)
- the mark got at the final dissertation (max 8 additional points)
Research theses not concerning a specific architectural design may be developed in any of the subjects of the ICAD syllabus, if duly motivated by the supervisor and approved by the Didactic committee.
