Výukové metody
The student participates in individual consultations with the supervisor in all stages of thesis preparation, writing, and completion.
Metody hodnocení
The course is based on the student’s individual consultations with their thesis supervisor. The supervisor issues a credit (zápočet) based on the text submitted by the student into the Homework Vault of the Diploma Seminar in the IS. The course is successfully concluded in the regular deadline if the text is submitted into the Vault by the date determined each semester in the department term calendar. To be awarded a credit, the submitted text must also fulfil the KMVES designated criteria both in content and form. If a credit is not issued in the regular deadline, the student may edit the draft according to the supervisor’s instructions and resubmit to an alternate set date. In such a case, the thesis defence will take place in the following (or subsequent) semesters.
