Flexibility and multidisciplinarity are the pillars of the new teaching paradigm of Técnico 2nd Cycle courses, which now includes the possibility of choosing elective subjects from any scientific area. A Minor is a cohesive set of courses that offer a foundation in an area of study that complements the basic scientific training and allows students to further enrich their academic journey. Extracurricular activities also play an important role, once students can get academic credit from, for example, summer internships, student group membership or representation in student academic positions.
The culminating event of a master’s degree is the dissertation, which allows students to focus and specialise in a specific topic. In some master’s degrees, it is preceded by an integrated project, which relates the knowledge acquired in the various subjects. The dissertation can be carried out as part of a scientific thesis, an internship in a company or a multidisciplinary capstone project.
