BsC Thesis Advisor: Prof. Gracian Triviño.

BsC Thesis Mark: Cum Laude.

When I started studying Computer Science, University studies in Spain were very different to most countries. My "BsC" had a duration of 6 years + thesis. With this duration, I hope you understand why I put the quotation marks in "BsC"...
After the adoption of the Bologna Process, the BsC was reduced to 4 years, with a reduced-length thesis included in the itinerary. My 6 years "BsC" was then recognized as a BsC + MsC title.
