Last update: PhDr. Petr Bednařík, Ph.D. (21.09.2023)

The aim of diploma seminar 1 is

to formulate the basic topic of the diploma thesis,

to sketch the basic outlines of the solution of this topic,

to find the supervisor of the diploma thesis and

to prepare the project of the diploma thesis. These tasks will be addressed through collective discussion, written preparations and individual consultations.

Students are required to actively participate in seminars, perform written and oral assignments, and complete the seminar by submitting a diploma project in a structure that would allow its transfer to the SIS.

The seminar is online.

Ususally, the seminar has a form of a one-to-one consultation.

In case of more students working on a similar topic, small seminar groups will be established. Students will present and comment on each other’s project descriptions, revise these with regards to the feedback from fellow students and teacher, before it is submitted for final approval.

Completing the diploma thesis and prepare for its successful defence is the main goal of the course.
