Here are the main legal documents concerning Master’s projects:
- Ordinance on the evaluation of Bachelor and Master studies (art. 30, 31, and 32)
- Internal directive concerning examinations (art. 16, 17, and 18)
Any changes to the title of the Master’s project must be subimtted to the secretary’s office of the student’s program on the day of the exam at the latest. The title is mentioned in the student’s diploma supplement.
The Master’s project must be successfully completed within two semesters of the successful completion of the Master’s cycle (or the conditional admission to the Master’s project, if applicable). Should the Master’s project (of a duration of 25 weeks and at a company) serve to validate the engineer’s internship, the deadline is brought to three semesters.
Master’s projects done at EPFL last 17 weeks. Master’s projects done at a company may last up to 25 weeks if the program’s rulebook states so.
