The Dissertation

As a part of the MSc programme, students work on a project on a subject relating to their academic interests and stream specialisation. The Master's dissertation provides a good opportunity to apply theory and concepts learned in different courses to a real-world ICT problem or challenge.

The Master's dissertation tests their ability both to apply a certain methodology and approach, to analyse a given problem and to demonstrate reasonably original research work. Students are supervised throughout their projects by a member of the academic faculty. The supervision is delivered through face-to-face meetings at the University and through the e-learning platform of the University.
