Further on evaluation

The bachelor thesis and any product are considered as a whole. Group grades are used on a scale of A - F. UHR's Descriptions of Grades and Assessment Criteria for Bachelor's Theses in Engineering are followed.

If the bachelor thesis is assessed as Fail or grade F, the student(s) must submit a new thesis. Improvement/reworking is not sufficient. The thesis can present the same topic area with the same empirical/data basis.

The deadline for submitting the bachelor's thesis in engineering education is 20.05 at 12.00 regardless of year. If 20.05 a year falls on a weekend or public holiday, the submission deadline will be the following working day.

Preliminary project will be carried out in early January and must be approved. Assessment of the assignment is made on the basis of the project implementation, the report and the result of the work.

The bachelor's thesis must reflect on the sustainability relevance of the thesis based on the UN's sustainability goals.
