  • Master's thesis (LNU) (18 credits)

    • ECTS credits 18
    • Semester 2
    • University Ivan Franko National University of Lviv
    • Objectives

      The topic of the thesis can be proposed to the student by the local InterMaths coordinator or by the student him/herself. In any case, the InterMaths executive committee is the responsible to approve the thesis project before its formal start. The taste and expectations of the students are respected whenever possible. The local InterMaths coordinator in the hosting institution is the responsible to provide an academic advisor to the student, although proposals from the students will always be heard in this respect.

      In some cases, after the agreement with the local InterMaths coordinator, the thesis topic can be related to a problem proposed by a private company. In this case, a tutor will be designated by the company as responsible person of the work of the student, especially if he/she is eventually working in the facilities of the company; however, the academic advisor is, in any case, the responsible to ensure the progress, adequacy and scientific quality of the thesis. The necessary agreements between the university and the company will be signed in due time, according to the local rules, in order that academic credits could be legally obtained during an internship, and the students be covered by the insurance against accidents outside the university.

      NOTE: Although the thesis is scheduled for the 4th semester, some preliminary work may be anticipated due to the local rules - such as preliminary local courses in the 3rd semester, ensuring that the student can follow the main courses of the 3rd semester without problems. In this point, the personalised attention to the students has to be intensified, and decisions taken case by case.
