After the defense, the evaluation forms must be delivered to the professor coordinating the seminar. The project defense is always during the graduate student’s second semester.
The research project defense committee must consiste of: the adviser, a professor or employee of UFV or another institution (with a doctorate), and a master’s student in Agroecology that has completed Seminar in Agroecology – NUT 779.
