Contenus de l'unité d'enseignement

The master thesis is a substantial individual project that can also be realized in (collaboration with) a private company or research center in Belgium (or abroad for students staying one year at ULg). We generally consider that it amounts one semester of full time work. The subject must be proposed or approved by an advisor who must be an academic member or a permanent researcher.

Acquis d'apprentissage (objectifs d'apprentissage) de l'unité d'enseignement

The goal of the master thesis is to prepare the student to his/her future career in a private company or for a PhD program. The student will have to prove that (s)he can carry out a substantial project based of the theoretical and practical knowledge and skills acquired during his/her studies. This project will almost always include a preliminary study, some substantial development, and a final evaluation of the results.

Savoirs et compétences prérequis

It is advised to choose the optional courses (when possible) that will help achieve the thesis objectives.

Activités d'apprentissage prévues et méthodes d'enseignement

Mode d'enseignement (présentiel, à distance, hybride)

Professors propose thesis subjects for which they will act as official advisor. These subjects are either conceived by the advisor on topics related to his/her research fields, or by private companies/research centers. A student can also make a proposal, but it must be approved by an advisor. Students should choose a subject as early as possible, ideally at the end of the previous academic year, to increase the chances to finish by the deadline. The council of aerospace studies will make sure that all students have a subject and will also check the composition of the jury. The student will keep his/her advisor informed of his/her progress on a regular basis.

Modalités d'évaluation et critères

Vous trouverez ci-dessous les modalités d'évaluation envisagées pour les examens en présentiel et à distance ainsi que celle souhaitée en cas de session hybride. En fonction de l'évolution sanitaire, la modalité choisie vous sera communiquée au plus tard un mois avant le début de la session d'examen.

The evaluation is first based on the report written by the student. There are no formal constraints on its length, but it will typically consist of 50 to 100 pages. It should describe the context of the work, the problem addressed, the proposed solution with some justification, an evaluation, a conclusion and possibly some appendices. The thesis defense by the student is oral and public. It consists of an oral presentation, a question/answer session, and is followed by a short deliberation. The final grade takes account of the amount and quality of the achieved work, the quality of the written report and of the oral presentation, as well as the relevance of the provided answers.
