Final thesis defence

Once the final thesis has been submitted and approved, the student will receive an e-mail defence notification indicating the date, time and location of the defence and the composition of the examination committee. The notification will be sent at least three working days before the defence is to take place, within the period specified in the academic calendar.

If an examiner is absent when the defence is scheduled to take place, the ESEIAAT may, as a matter of urgency, appoint a substitute. Exceptionally, a final thesis examination committee may be convened with only two members present.

Students have a maximum of 20 minutes to defend their thesis, after which each member of the committee may ask the student to give any explanations/clarifications they consider necessary.

IMPORTANT: In the case of master's theses, students may only undertake the defence when they have completed all of the subjects of the degree.
