The curricular unit "Dissertation / Training Course" is an opportunity for the student to evidence knowledge/ understanding of a topic or specific topics addressed in the master's degree.
The main objectives of the dissertation are to allow students to develop their capacity to carry out scientific research, under the guidance of a supervisor and / or co-supervisor. The training course aims to assess the ability of students to meet the challenges of a labor market in constant development and promote the students' curriculum enrichment in view to their professional integration in companies working in Remote Sensing amd related fields.
It is expected that students:
- have improved: (i) their research skills and ability to solve problems; ii) their ability to synthesise and integrate knowledge; ii) their critical sense.
- are able to successfully carry out dissertation / internship work and present it in a public academix assessment.
In the Dissertation/Training course, each student, under the guidance of a supervisor and/or a co-supervisor, will develop a theme related to Remote Sensing. The student will prepare a Dissertation or an Written Report which will be evaluated through public academic assessment
Dissertation: The student should carry out a scientific research work in a fundamental or applied field of Remote Sensing under the guidance of a supervisor and/or co-supervisor.
Training Course: The student must work autonomously in a company guided by a supervisor in the company, and by a supervisor from FCUP.
|Defesa pública de dissertação, de relatório de projeto ou estágio, ou de tese||100,00|
|Apresentação/discussão de um trabalho científico||5,00|
|Trabalho de investigação||745,00|
Dissertation: the student's assessment consists in the analysis of his/her dissertation, specifically written for this purpose.
Training course: the assessment is carried out based on information obtained from the supervisor in the company, through an evaluation form, and based on a written report prepared for this purpose.
Both the dissertation and the Training course report must follow the norms regulated by the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto. Students will be evaluated through public academic assessment.
