External assessors in supervisory boards
Invited staff of international prominence participate in the MSc examination committees, as active external assessors with thematic expertise in the corresponding research subject.
In addition, in an attempt to offer the students a MSc research subject related closely to their interest, based upon the existing contact networks, MSc Thesis supervisors from institutions outside ECT Consortium participate in the programme regularly.
At the concluding part of the vivas and following discussion of the presentations, a Graduation Ceremony takes place.
- An external examiner or industry representative gives the closing lecture.
- The ECT Consortium recognises publically Special Awards to prominent students (i.e. best MSc thesis presentation; best marks; special mentions), which are given by representatives of the partner universities.
- A “get-together” lunch is provided to students/staff/representatives.
