Extent of the State Final Examinations

The scope of a doctoral state examination is determined by the individual study plan of the student being examined and by the theme of his/her future dissertation thesis. Within the examination as well as within a report on the theme of the dissertation thesis, the student proves his/her knowledge of the state of the art methodologies, theories, and their applications on a level exceeding the level common in MSc study programmes. The doctoral state examination also encompasses an evaluation of the presumed goals of the future dissertation thesis of the student, of the chosen solution method, and of the so far obtained original results.
