Graduating in Physical Science and Technology

To be awarded a bachelor's or master's degree are provided three sessions per year:

  • Summer session
  • Autumn session
  • Winter session

In the Deadlines and calendars paragraph are available the dates for each session and all necessary steps to sustain the final exam.

Students who graduate by the third session of academic year need not pay the first instalment for next academic year.

To be admitted to the final exam, students must apply online for graduation, respecting session deadlines.

The Graduation fee amounts to 116 Euros (including a 16 Euro revenue stamp) to be paid through one of the following procedures:

  • by credit card during the online enrolment procedure
  • in a bank or at the Post Office using the MAV (notice of payment) form printed at the end of the online enrolment procedure, accessible through Unimia (online services, Registrar services, payments) by the deadline indicated on the form, or the candidate will not be allowed to sit the exam.

Students must fill in the graduand questionnaire by the deadlines established for each exam session or they will not be allowed to sit the exam, as established by the Academic Senate (resolution of 16 September 2008).

The survey may be accessed only once the application for graduation has been submitted.

Each application is valid for a single exam session.

Students who forfeit an exam must promptly notify the Registrar through the Informastudenti Service. Students must submit another application through the online procedure, indicating the newly chosen exam session.

Once paid, the graduation fee is valid for the new session also. Postponements are not allowed.

Linee guida per l'attribuzione del voto finale

Per il conseguimento della laurea triennale è richiesta la presentazione di una tesi elaborata dallo studente in modo originale sotto la guida di un relatore.
La Commissione di laurea esprime il giudizio tenendo conto dell’intero percorso di studi dello studente, valutandone la maturità culturale e la capacità di elaborazione intellettuale personale, nonché la qualità del lavoro svolto nel caso della tesi (rif. art.20 del Regolamento Didattico dell'Università degli Studi di Milano).

Incremento attribuito per la tesi
La Commissione di Laurea, che include di norma il Relatore, attribuisce un punteggio aggiuntivo rispetto alla media ponderata degli esami che è riportata nei documenti forniti dalla segreteria didattica. L'innalzamento viene attribuito collegialmente dalla Commissione sulla base di una proposta iniziale formulata da Relatore e/o Correlatore/i.

Di norma, l’innalzamento del punteggio è compreso tra 6 e 8 punti (stima dell’incremento effettuata sulla base dei dati statistici). La Commissione può attribuire un punteggio più elevato solo in casi realmente eccezionali, cioè casi da considerare in misura del tre per cento delle tesi discusse nell’anno accademico (valutazione che verrà effettuata periodicamente ex-post). Il Relatore che intenda proporre l'innalzamento eccezionale, deve segnalarlo agli altri Commissari prima della seduta di Laurea, in modo che tutti possano esprimere la propria valutazione con la massima consapevolezza di voler utilizzare questa possibilità.

Non è da considerare un titolo di merito avere superato il tempo previsto per il lavoro di tesi, questo infatti va messo in relazione ai 9 CFU previsti per il suo svolgimento.
Il punteggio finale è dato dalla media ponderata espressa in centodecimi più l'innalzamento, il tutto arrotondato all’intero più vicino e limitato a 110/110.

Attribuzione della lode
L’eventuale attribuzione della lode, in aggiunta al punteggio massimo di 110 punti, è subordinata alla accertata rilevanza dei risultati raggiunti dal candidato e alla valutazione unanime della Commissione (rif. art.23 Regolamento generale d’Ateneo).
A titolo di esempio, di seguito vengono riportati alcuni elementi valutativi utili per l’attribuzione della lode:

  • contributo apportato dallo studente nel lavoro di tesi
  • capacità di lavoro in autonomia
  • efficacia della presentazione
  • capacità di chiarire ed approfondire i punti evidenziati dalla Commissione
