Bachelor's or Master's Degree Final Project
COMPULSORY SUBJECT IN ALL BACHELOR'S AND MASTER'S DEGREES AND MASTER'S DEGREES OF TECNUN

The External Relations Service manages the end-of-degree/master's degree projects carried out in companies (and also voluntary internships). These will be formalised by means of a collaboration agreement between the company and the University of Navarra. The stay in the company for the end-of-degree/master's degree project is academic in nature and therefore there is no employment relationship between the company and the student.

What is the Final Degree Project?

The Final Degree Project, hereinafter PFG, is a compulsory subject in the Bachelor's Degrees taught at the School of Engineering. In it, the student prepares a project in the field of specific engineering technologies, of a professional nature, in which the skills acquired in the course are synthesised and integrated. This subject is assessed by means of a digital report and a public defence.

In order to guarantee a sufficient offer to make it possible for all students to take this subject, the Final Degree Projects may be of one of the following types:

  • OWN: Projects from among those offered by the Departments of the School of Engineering or Ceit.

  • THIRD PARTY: Projects developed within the framework of an agreement with companies, organisations or other universities.

This instruction regulates the administrative and academic procedures for the application, implementation, presentation and assessment of the PFG in the Bachelor's Degrees of the School of Engineering.

  • The PFG must be enrolled as an additional subject (in summer or during the extended enrolment period in January). If a student is only missing the PFG to complete the degree, he/she must register for it in order to maintain his/her student status. It is essential to be enrolled in the PFG in order to be able to take it. However, it is not necessary to be enrolled in the PFG to start working on it. If a student wishes to carry out the GFP in a company, the administrative procedures will be carried out through the External Relations Service at Tecnun. The public defence will take place before a Tribunal consisting of at least two people.

  • The deadlines for the defense are:

    • September 7 for the ordinary convocation.

    • September 8 for the extraordinary convocation.

No more than fifteen days will pass between the defence of the PFG and the generation of the PFG report, so that the grade will be included in the student's file within this period.

  • The deadline for the waiver request for the PFG will be one week before the corresponding defence deadline.

  • The student, depending on the subject chosen for his/her project, must go to the Project Manager, hereinafter referred to as the RP in charge of the chosen subject so that he/she can assign an Academic Supervisor (the student will carry out the PFG in which the subject of his/her Project is framed, regardless of his/her degree).

  • The PR may exceptionally assign, upon request and study, projects in its subject area to students who do not belong to the corresponding degree, if it considers that the competences acquired by the student in the degree studied are sufficient.

  • The Academic Supervisor will be responsible for the supervision of the student's project and will give his/her approval prior to the delivery of the digital memory.

  • The minimum project dedication is set at 300 hours of work for 12 ECTS projects.

  • The student will deliver the digital report of his/her GFP to the secretary's office(vmartin@tecnun.es) and to his/her Academic Supervisor, who will send it to the PR. The Head of Projects of the Department will set the date for the defence, will appoint the members of the Tribunal and will send them the corresponding Qualification Sheet.

  • The public defence of the PFG will take place on a date to be agreed. After the defence, the panel will only inform the student if the PFG has been considered pass or fail, without communicating the numerical grade. Finally, the examining board will give the grade sheet to the Project Manager and the latter will publish the grade in the Minutes. The examining board will assess the project according to the following weighted criteria:

    • Difficulty of the subject

    • Project structure and content

    • Presentation (figures, plans, etc.)

    • Oral defence

    • Answers to the Court's questions

    • Dedication and rigour in production

The bachelor's/master's degree final project is a compulsory subject that students can carry out in a company. In order to be considered as an Academic Project, it must be validated by the lecturer in charge of final degree/master's projects assigned by Tecnun.

Depending on the subject and content of the project the teachers are:

Undergraduate Degrees

  • Degree in Mechanical Engineering: Prof. Iñigo Puente(ipuente@tecnun.es)

  • Degree in Industrial Design Engineering and Product Development: Prof. Paz Morer(pmorer@tecnun.es)

  • Degree in Biomedical Engineering: Prof. Javier Aldazabal(jaldazabal@tecnun.es)

  • Degree in Electronic Communications Engineering / Degree in Telecommunication Systems Engineering / Degree in Electrical Engineering / Degree in Industrial Electronic Engineering: Prof. Joaquín de Nó(deno@tecnun.es)

  • Degree in Industrial Organisation Engineering: Prof. Javier Santos(jsantos@tecnun.es)

  • Degree in Industrial Technologies: Students on this degree may choose any of the subjects defined for the degrees in: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Industrial Electronics Engineering for which they have the necessary knowledge.

Master's Degrees

In addition to the areas mentioned above, projects in the areas of materials and environmental engineering may be carried out. The lecturer in charge will assess the suitability of the candidates for carrying out this type of project. The lecturer responsible for the materials area is Javier Aldazabal and for the environmental area is Ion Irizar.

The lecturer in charge of projects will assign an academic tutor who will be the person who will monitor the project.
