Final state exam

Pursuant to Dean's Directive No. 5/2018, the final state exam for Mathematical Engineering students at the BUT Faculty of Mechanical Engineering consists of two parts:

  • defending a thesis (20-25 minutes)
    • the examination board consists of five members from Brno plus one (or more) member from L'Aquila.
    • the presentation and subsequent discussion takes place in Brno in the presence of a representative from University of L'Aquila or by a videoconference.
  • discussion on a specific topic (35 - 40 minutes)


The schedule of the academic year 2018/19:

  • 30. 4. 2019 applications for final state examination
  • 6. 5. - 31. 5. 2019 examination period
  • 24. 5. 2019 31. 5. 2019 by 12:00 submitting of master's theses to the secretary of Institute of Mathematics (A1/1818)
  • 27. 5. 31. 5. - 7. 6. 2019 reviews
  • 10. 6. and 11. 6. 2019 final state exam (from 8:00 to 17:00)
    • Your presentation for defending of your thesis you have to upload to the computer on Friday 7. 6. 2019 between 9:00-12:00 or on Monday between 7:00-7:30.
  • 8. 7. - 11. 7. 2019 graduation


Master thesis:

  • By 30th June 2019, you must choose the topic of your thesis (for new students in academic year 2019/20)
  • You can find a list of the topics in the Studis (Student's information system, which you may access after being admitted to the study).
    • Rather than using the Studis list, you may also find it better contacting immediately someone conducting research in the field of your preference to have a detailed discussion on the subject. You may then receive a topic of your thesis that better suits your focus, skills, and knowledge. Concerning your future supervisor, you can also find a suitable person from an institute other than the Institute of Mathematics. See the list of institutes of the BUT Faculty of Mechanical Engineering where you can find the e-mail address of the person you would like to contact.
