Project elaboration (tutorial supervision) and defense
Carry out a closer monitoring of the progress carried out by the student by specialists in the area of investigation (supervisor(s) included), particularly in relation to the development of scientific writing, synthesis and communication skills. This new course complements the existing courses of Seminar in Ecology I and II, where students only perform an oral presentation of their project; in this case, they will have to submit a detailed written report about their thesis project, including the state of the art, objectives, hypotheses and detailed experimental design and the analysis of the results obtained so far.
In this course students will have to submit a detailed written report on the thesis project (variable depending on the topic of the project), including state of the art, goals, working hypotheses, experimental design and data obtained to date. They will have also to defend the project within their working group that must include the supervisor or supervisors. The grade and a justification statement shall be provided by the supervisor(s) to the coordinator of the Master Course. The grade will be registered by the coordinator in the official document of the curricular unit.
