Since the first students joined MESG in 2007, more than 200 master thesis or projects have been successfully completed. Thesis topics include service operations, business processes, service design, among others.
The master thesis or project takes place full-time in a selected institution, according to a previously defined work program according to specific protocol between that institution, FEUP, and the student.
The project has a duration of about 20 weeks (30 ECTS – 810 hours) generally involving the following tasks:
– Detailed definition of the problem
– Literature review
– Definition of methodology
– Data collection and analysis/development of a solution
– Preparation of thesis document
– Final public presentation and discussion with an evaluation committee
The project will have an advisor designated by FEUP and may have an advisor at the project’s host institution, which can be a company or a research organization. It is also possible to carry out the project within a research unit of FEUP.
MESG students take a course on research methodology previous to the start of the thesis project.
The list of finished master thesis and projects is available here.
