Evaluation of supervised research periods

Each year the academic committee  will evaluate each candidate’s progress on the thesis, as well as the related activities performed. All this information constitutes the so-called Activity Report Document (DAD). It must be reported before the stablished deadline that appears in the academic calendar. If a student fails the evaluation, there will be second evaluation in less that six months. If the student fails this second evaluation, he/she will be discarded from the program.

If the student does not present the required report his/her grade will be Fail.

For the advisor/tutor
