Final Master’s Degree Project

The Final Master’s Degree Project (TFM), in qualifications adapted to the EHEA, is a piece of work that each student must carry out individually to finish their degree.

The TFM to be presented will correspond to research work performed during the studies of the TAIDA master’s degree.

It must be directed by a lecturer within the TAIDA master’s degree. Co-direction by doctors outside the mentioned master’s degree is also possible.

There are three tribunals depending on the specific knowledge and capacities of each research area in the programme. These tribunals are “Tecnología e Ingeniería de la Producción Vegetal”, “Tecnología e Ingeniería de los Alimentos” and “Biotecnología Agroalimentaria”. Each tribunal will establish at least three dates to defend the TFM.

The candidate will give a presentation of between 20 and 30 minutes, which will be followed by a question-and-answer session by the tribunal members, for a maximum of 90 minutes

Provided that the student has enrolled in the TFM, the procedures for the TFM will be started in the corresponding telematic application, which can be accessed from the Campus Virtual.


  • The TFM presented will have a maximum length of 50 DinA4 pages with 1.5 spacing and a standard font of 12 points
  • The document may contain annexes with additional appropriate data
  • The document’s structure will correspond to that of a research article that contains a normalised cover page, authorisation by the director(s), contents, summary, abstract in English, introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion, and bibliography
  • Provided that the student has enrolled in the TFM, the procedures for the TFM will be started in the corresponding telematic application, which can be accessed from the Portal de Servicios.


  • When marking the project, it is considered to be especially relevant that the project’s results have been presented in a congress or journal, which should be cited in the TFM.
  • The presentation of a publication in a Science Citation Index (ISI) journal will enable the project to obtain the maximum grade. The documentation accrediting said case must be subjected to scrutiny by the tribunal if the work is pending acceptance at the time the project is presented
  • In the event that there are works accepted or in the acceptance process, including contributions to congresses and articles, the TFM director must clarify the specific contribution made by the student presenting the TFM (contribution model).
