The bachelor's degree thesis consists of the completion, presentation and defense of an individual project by the future graduate that will include innovative elements of research or healthcare or industrial application, which represent an approach to professional practice.
The work to be produced must be previously defined as a project that details the topic to be studied, its relevance, the objectives set, and the methodology to be used. It must also include elements of research, innovation or technology application. Only bibliographic works will not be accepted.
The thesis will provide future graduates with the capacity to understand knowledge and apply advanced technologies and tools in their area to meet the set objectives. The project should preferably be of a multidisciplinary nature, within the field of pharmacy, in which the skills acquired through the bachelor's degree are encapsulated and integrated.
The work will be done under the direction of a bachelor's degree professor - a professor from IQS or the School of Health Sciences - who has the authorization of the academic director of the area. The student will join the research team of the professor-director. With the same academic guarantees, and under the tutelage of a bachelor's degree professor, the thesis may be completed in other national or foreign institutions, public or private care or research centers, industries or companies from the chemical or biotechnological sectors, etc. The thesis is, therefore, a tutored assignment in which the student is responsible for their learning process.
At this stage, the student will have tutored sessions related to the follow-up of the project, as well as formal and methodological issues necessary to produce, write and defend the work.
The thesis will culminate with the drafting of a report and its presentation and defense before a jury.
