The TFG must be defended and evaluated once it is proven that the student has passed all the remaining subjects of the study plan and has, therefore, all the necessary credits to obtain the degree, except those corresponding to the TFG itself.
The End of Degree Project (TFG) is the first professional work that students do during their training at the University College of Computer Science. In this work, carried out in the final phase of their studies, the student must make use of the knowledge acquired in the subjects studied. The TFG will be carried out on a subject related to the competences of the Specific Technology module that the student has studied and its realization is an essential requirement for the obtaining of the Graduate Degree in Computer Engineering.
The aim of the TFG is that the student prepares a personal work where he applies his knowledge, experiences, skills and creativity and originality to the solution of real problems. The TFG will provide solutions in the different themes of computer engineering, and special emphasis will be placed on the engineering or methodological approach to their realization. It may contain prototypes, theoretical models, algorithms, specifications, analysis and designs of both software and hardware components, but in all cases will have a remarkable part of implementation.
Teaching use of other languages:
The realization and the defense will be able to be realized in English, at the request of the student and director. The requirement of accrediting level B1, may be replaced by passing a TFG conducted and defended in English. In any case, the report will have a summary in Spanish and English. If the student chooses English as the language of the TFG, the summary, introduction and conclusions must be made in Spanish and English.
To obtain the mention of bilingual degree, it is necessary to have passed a minimum of 40% of the load in credits of the degree studies in English. This is 96 ECTS (40% of 240 ECTS) or, what is the same, a minimum of 16 subjects or 14 subjects plus the TFG.Therefore, if a TFG is to be taken in a bilingual format so that it is recorded in the European Supplement to the degree that the student receives at the end of the degree studies, it must be taken COMPLETELY in English. This implies the application, the report and the defence of the TFG in the English language.
In any case, if the 96 ECTS have already been passed, the choice of the language in which the TFG is developed and defended may follow the general specifications for any TFG.
