Presentation

The CSIM Master Thesis gives students the opportunity to work in depth in a particular field of knowledge through hands-on work associated with one of the research groups at UPF.  Students will utilize concepts learned in coursework, such as experimental methods and principles of data analysis, to balance between theory and practice, method and hands-on. Students are encouraged to have fun, push their own limits, and take risks.

Independent Work & Supervisor

CSIM students will first choose a project and are assigned a supervisor to help them and guide them through the process to a successful thesis. During this process, students must be autonomous and proactive in undertaking a research problem to successfully reach the expected goals. Hence, it is not the supervisor's responsibility to push students or do the work which has been assigned to the student.
Supervisors will be available upon request to answer doubts, queries and suggestions made by the students.

Associated skills

The related skills form a compound of all the objectives, comptences and learning outcomes of the master:

Be able to investigate a research area with an accurate state of the art, be able to pose an hypothesis in that area and make use or develop the methodology necessary to prove that hypothesis, ending with a sound, exhaustive, consistent evaluation, also against concurrent and competent alternatives.

Learning outcomes

Learning outcomes correspond to all the alligned objectives and competences of the master.

Sustainable Development Goals

Train the student as a junior researcher.

Prerequisites

None are required.

Contents

To successfully finalize the thesis, CSIM students must go through the steps defined in the sections below. The approximate calendar for these steps is the following:

  • October-November: Choose project
  • January (last week): deliver State of the Art document (grade: 0 - 5 counting for 10% of A section)
  • End of March: Mid-term Oral Presentation of the work in front of an Evaluation Board (no grade: Suggestions, Warnings, Ammendments, etc.)
  • March: Mid-term Master Thesis document with work done including Methodology and Experimental Set-up Design (grade: 0 - 5 counting 30% of A section)
  • June: Pre-final Master Thesis document with all work done (grade: Pass/Amend)
  • July (first week): Final Oral Defense in front of an Evaluation Board (grade: Section B of Evaluation Form)
  • July (2nd / 3rd week): Final Master Thesis document (grade: 0 - 5 counting 60% of Section A of Evaluation Form)

Teaching Methods

Zero tolerance on plagiarism

It is very important that CSIM students respect and follow UPF's guidelines on plagiarism. Any incidence of plagiarism will result in the failure of the Master thesis. No exceptions will be made. In case of a doubt on how to cite work of others properly, the student should consult with the supervisor and/or the commission.

Subsequent Publication

The theses may be published on the web page of the CSIM master. This is meant to inform possible future students about the topics that can be addressed in our master, format, etc. If, for whatever reason, the student and/or supervisor prefer not to publish this abstract, they should notify the CSIM commission beforehand.

Evaluation

Qualifying Criteria

The final grade of the Master Thesis is based on the criteria defined in the: Evaluation Form

  • Section A is the grade for the the written document. It is decided by the evaluation board and the CSIM committee together with the supervisor. This grade will be obtained from three deliveries of documents at three different stages in your thesis:
    • First, the State of the Art document (in January) which counts for 10% of the final A section.
    • Second, the Interim Report (in March) which counts for 30% of the final A section.
    • Third, the Final Report (in July) which counts for 60% of the final A section grade.
  • Section B refers only to the Oral Presentation that the student makes at the end of the year. This grade is defined by the Evaluation Board chosen for that student's defense.
  • Section C is the grade for the student's overall contribution. It gives an overall grade for how the project has been approached, developed and analyzed. This section is defined by the supervisor of the project.

The final grade is an average of the three sections.

Bibliography and information resources

Given by each research group and supervisors.
