The degree in SSCTA is achieved by passing a final test, which involves the preparation of a document related to an experimental research, under the guidance of a tutor, carried out by the student at university laboratories or other public or private institutions. In the final test, which constitutes an individual training to complete the course, the student illustrates and discusses his/her internship activity, in agreement with the academic supervisor and the external tutor.
Expected learning outcomes
With the final test, the student demonstrates that he/she has personally carried out a short research project, and that he/she has acquired the knowledge and practical ability to discuss and present the experimental results obtained. The entire educational path is then completed with the acquisition of the latest CFU.
Lesson period: Second semester
(In case of multiple editions, please check the period, as it may vary)
To be admitted to the final test, the student must have obtained the required credits, by passing the exam tests or other activities required by the teaching plan (177 CFU).
Assessment methods and Criteria
During the final test, the student must be capable to: - show mastery and communication skills on issues relating to the final thesis; - show autonomy of management in the processing and interpretation of the data obtained; - show ability and autonomy of judgment regarding the ability to understand, elaborate and critically evaluate the content of any questions from the graduation commission and the ability to effectively communicate the information or clarifications requested. The graduation commission expresses a final judgment considering the ability to elaborate and display the scientific results, the student's educational story and the overall cultural maturity achieved. The thesis can also be prepared by carrying out the internship abroad after a period of 6 months in structures that host Erasmus students. The final test can be discussed in English and the thesis elaborate can be presented in the same language.
