SciPro was found to lead to a major increase in completed theses when implemented at Stockholm University’s Department of Computer Science. It led to an increase from 53 to 570 over five years, with a only a doubling of supervisors. 

As students are always informed, knowing what to do, how to do it and when it needs to be done, students are able to work independently without needing as much supervisor time.

With the structure in place, supervisors can use their hours on their students’ essays rather than on administrative work related to their students’ essays. 

With the right tools in place, feedback becomes better and more relevant, leading to better thesis work from the student.

USER REVIEW

"I have been working with SciPro for three years now and have completed supervision of around 20 bachelor and masters theses. My track record is 100%. All of the students who have actually started their thesis projects with me as their supervisor have finished  on time."

Dr. Fredrik Björck

- Senior Lecturer

"I use Scipro because I can manage my supervision and review tasks efficiently. I can access all information and save the communications with my colleagues and my students in one place. This makes easier for me to track the thesis writing process and help students ."​

Dr. Shengnan Han​

- Associate Professor

By centralising my supervision tasks into one place, SciPro has made my thesis supervision work much more efficient and effective. It gives students a track to follow, it lets me know where exactly each student is and what we’ve agreed on, and it allows flexibility even with a large number of students."​

Dr. Matti Tedre​

- Associate Professor
