The aim of the course is for the student to acquire the techniques used in the engineering practice related to the master's program / specialization within the framework of the thesis project, to acquire an independent problem-solving practice. During the thesis project task, the student demonstrates maturity for solving engineering tasks to a high standard by solving and documenting tasks related to various topics. During the thesis planning, the student performs independent engineering work under the guidance of the supervisor of the department and sometimes under an internal / external consultant. Within the framework of the thesis design, the student completing the given master's program proves his / her suitability for independent engineering work by elaborating the topic included in the official assignment at a high level on an independent, timely basis. Completion of the subject "Master Thesis Project A" together with the "Master Thesis Project B" task provides a suitable basis for the preparation of the MSc thesis project concluding the master's degree, in which the results are summarized in the prescribed format.
Competences that can be acquired by completing the course
With the help of his / her supervisor, he / she identifies the main content elements of the thesis to be written about a chosen segment of the field. The student gathers the relevant literature with the help of the knowledge acquired during the program. With the help of the student's prior knowledge, the student systematizes the new knowledge gained during the reading of the literature. The student has the knowledge needed to analyze the literature reviewed. He / she is aware of the professional knowledge required to perform the tasks in the assignment at the appropriate level. The student identifies challenges that would require a departure from the assignment or an extension of the scope of the tasks. The student has the knowledge to consult effectively with the supervisor. The student has the knowledge to propose changes to the assignment if necessary. He / she is aware of the professional knowledge on the basis of which he / she is able to make a proposal for the formulation of the points of the task with the help of his / her supervisor. He / she names the content of each chapter of the thesis project, he / she is able to formulate its length on the basis of prior knowledge.
Understands the tasks in the assignment correctly. Specifies the correct order in which the tasks detailed in the assignment are performed. The student identifies the range of literature that still needs to be reviewed in order to properly prepare the thesis. Describes the relevant knowledge found in the literature in the thesis. The student analyzes the literature reviewed in the light of what has been learned previously. The student applies the professional knowledge acquired during his/her studies so far during the elaboration of his/her thesis. The student adequately addresses emerging challenges that would require deviating from the assignment or expanding the tasks. In the course of his/her work, the student prepares the results of the literature reviewed or the analysis carried out in order to make the consultations with his / her supervisor effective. He / she proposes to his / her supervisor to modify the assignment of the thesis if the need arises. After completing the work, makes suggestions for ways forward.
The student constantly monitors his/her work, results and conclusions with the help of his/her supervisor and consultant. The student expands his/her knowledge in the chosen field by constantly acquiring knowledge. The student is open to using information technology tools and acquiring new skills when needed. The student strives to get to know the error-free and routine use of the tool system necessary for solving the technical problems that arise. The student develops its ability to provide accurate and error-free problem solving, engineering precision and accuracy.
Independence and responsibility
Collaborates with the supervisor and consultant, as well as fellow students as needed, to expand his/her knowledge. During the preparation of the thesis, he / she accepts the well-founded professional and other critical remarks. He / she constantly cooperates with his / her supervisor, consultant and, if necessary, fellow students during the elaboration of his / her thesis. With his/her knowledge, the student makes a responsible, well-founded and independent decision based on his/her analyzes. The student feels responsible for the problems of energy efficiency and the sustainable use of the environment, as well as for present and future generations.
The subject is a unit without contact lessons. The student works independently on a complex task during the semester. The student tries to solve the problems that arise during the solution of the task on its own. He / she will only use the help of his / her supervisor or, if applicable, his / her internal / external consultant when making strategic decisions. During the solution of the task, the student uses the knowledge and skills acquired during the progrma to solve the task. The essence of the applied educational methodology is independent work. Guidance and assistance is provided by a consultation system with the supervisor, which provides an opportunity for personal consultation. The frequency of this is at least weekly, as recorded / agreed with the supervisor at the beginning of the semester. A student with a formal assignment develops the assignment on the basis of a work plan individually agreed with his / her supervisor. Tasks are often characterized by independent research, independent learning from the literature, and the application of knowledge acquired during the program to solve specific tasks. The results achieved during the elaboration of the thesis project must be presented in the framework of the thesis and presentation submitted by the deadline at the end of the semester. The content of the dissertation or the presentation. formal requirements are determined by the supervisor, taking into account the general faculty / departmental regulations.

Validity of the course description
|Start of validity:||2021. May 31.|
|End of validity:||2024. December 31.|
The supervisor evaluates the performance on the basis of the work done during the semester and the completed thesis. The quality of the semester activity is determined by the elaboration of the topic, the quality of the performed engineering work, the quality of the processing of the literature related to the topic, the formal, aesthetic appearance, division and logical structure of the thesis. The content / formal requirements of the thesis written about the work done within the subject are included in the current regulations of the faculty / department. The evaluation will be carried out by the supervisor, who will seek the opinion of the external / internal consultant, as appropriate.
Detailed description of mid-term assessments
|Mid-term assessment No. 1|
|Type:||formative assessment, project-based, complex|
|Purpose, description:||The supervisor evaluates the performance on the basis of the work done during the semester and the completed thesis. The quality of the semester activity is determined by the elaboration of the topic, the quality of the performed engineering work, the quality of the processing of the literature related to the topic, the formal, aesthetic appearance, division and logical structure of the thesis. The content / formal requirements of the thesis written about the work done within the subject are included in the current regulations of the faculty / department. The evaluation will be carried out by the supervisor, who will seek the opinion of the external / internal consultant, as appropriate. The student whose mid-term work is invaluable is given the entry “failed” - thus invalidating the assignment.|
