The diploma seminar represents the initial step leading to the diploma project, which is elaborated in the following semester. The purpose of the diploma seminar is to analyse the wider scope of the topic on which the award of the diploma thesis will be based. By working on the diploma seminar the student will be able to gain insight into professional issues connected with his or her future diploma project in the form of a research project, within which the diploma thesis will be developed. The diploma seminar precedes the diploma project and can be processed in the following variants:
- Analysis of the territory of the future diploma project - in which case the student should not be acquainted with the specific program of the diploma project.
- Search for the program and typology of the future diploma project - in which case the student should not know the specific place of the diploma project.
- Optional other variants are possible in agreement with the studio tutor and the dean approval.
