In terms of administration, the thesis is almost like any other project at ITU. When writing your thesis, you must therefore follow the general guidelines for projects concerning how to register for a project and finding a supervisor etc.

Especially for KDDIT and DIM: the supervisor will be allocated on the basis of student wishes and the availability of the supervisors in question.
​Unless ​if you are on DIM and are writing your Thesis in the Autumn. Then you will have to find a supervisor yourself. 

Below, you can find more specific information about the thesis.

When can you start your thesis?

The master thesis must conclude your education. You can register for 7,5 credits in the same semester as you write your thesis.

If you are lacking 22,5 ECTS or less (besides the thesis) at the start of a semester, you can sign up for the remaining credits and write the thesis in the following semester. Sometimes it will be necessary to write the thesis and then take the last ECTS in the following semester. Be aware that as a minimum you need to have passed 60 ECTS when writing your thesis.


Remember to register for your thesis in the registration period. Also be aware of the deadline for submitting the project agreement to the Board of studies and for sending the supervision agreement (former thesis plan). Find the submission deadlines in the Semester overview under Your Programme.

Sending in a supervision agreement (former thesis plan)

Besides filling in and submitting the Project agreement, you must send a supervision agreement (former thesis plan) to Student Affairs and Programmes. Please see Your Programme / Semester Overview for the submission deadline.

You should send the supervision agreement as an attachment by email to You will not get a receipt after you send the supervision agreement.
