Master's ThesisThe thesis is a compulsory part of a Master's degree study. Its purpose is to build on the knowledge and proficiency of the course studied. It serves as proof of the knowledge acquired from the study program and the ability of a student to use this knowledge for solving a given task. The thesis has to link to the courses of the chosen field of study.
Students are required to obtain 20 credits in total for the thesis. At the thesis registration (course code SDIPR) students select a number of credits which they wish to use towards the thesis in each semester. It is therefore possible to spread the work on thesis over several semesters or complete it during one semester only. Students are awarded with a course-unit credit upon completion of the SDIPR course.
Thesis TopicA list of thesis topics is available in the Information System of MU. Here the student can also log on and is also needed to contact the advisor and arrange with him/her to the exact assignment and work progress.
Should students find none of those topics suitable, it is possible to contact a teacher specialising in a chosen field. This teacher or students themselves are allowed to propose a new or different topic. Laboratories at FI, CVT and ÚVT may serve as useful sources of inspiration when searching for an interesting topic.
Especially in Applied Informatics it is possible to work on a topic assigned by a commercial firm. In that case it is recommenced to find a supervising teacher who will guarantee contextual and formal fulfilment of requirements, including the entry of the thesis topic in the Information System of MU.
Course SDIPRWhen student is writing his diploma thesis he should enrol the course SDIPR, this course could be enrolled repeatedly. Overall, student has to earn 20 credits for diploma thesis. During enrolment period student chooses the number of credits that wants in the given semester. Student can divide the work and credits into more semesters or concentrate them in one. It is strongly recommended that the diploma thesis is divided to two semesters at least. The credits for this course is given by the thesis advisor. It should apply that the amount of done work corresponds to the amount of exhausted credits. Exact conditions for granting the credits should be consulted with a particular thesis advisor.
