Construction engineering students follow HAMK thesis instructions which are in Intra.

The topic of the thesis should be relevant to the student´s professional studies and to the job the student may have after graduation.

Precise thesis instructions for construction engineering students:

  1. Student gets a thesis subject by him/herself. The degree programme will help in this if necessary.          
  2. Student can start the thesis process when he/she has completed all the basic studies and the minimum of 150 credits.
  3. Student suggests a thesis topic to the degree programme by using the Thesis topic form (App 2 on the right hand side of this page).
  4. The form should be submitted to the thesis coordinator Niina Kovanen and the head of degree programme (Jari Komsi) by e-mail. The thesis topic will be evaluated and approved in the teachers´ meeting which takes place once a month according to the attached timetable. In this meeting, supervising teacher/teachers will be appointed to students, and grading of finished thesis reports is discussed there as well.
  5. After the thesis topic has been accepted in the meeting, the information about this will be sent to a student by e-mail.

Changes in thesis binding! 
Depending on what is agreed with the thesis supervisor, thesis report is uploaded either in Theseus or HAMK’s own electronic archive. For instructions, see Thesis guide on the right hand side of this page. HAMK does not require a bound copy of the report, but if a student wishes to have a copy of the report for him/herself, it can be done on student’s own expense.
