Evaluation of theses

Several dozens of panel members from Czech and Slovak universities and the leading Czech IT company Profinit participate in evaluation of theses.
Evaluation is in particular focused on the following:

The research aspect

Whether the thesis offers new methods, models and algorithms or whether it improves existing ones

The aspect of evaluation of the solution

Verifies the created solution (usually an experimental one) – a superb thesis should include proof of the proposed solution

The implementation aspect

It implements the existing methods, models and algorithms or improves their implementation

The research aspect

The student is aware of the existing solution for the given issued – a necessary condition for a superb thesis
