|What happens to my bachelor/master thesis?
And how about access control?
Bachelor and master theses in DTU Findit
Before submitting the thesis, you must decide whether or not to grant full text access to the thesis in DTU Findit for employees and students at DTU (DTU login). When you upload the thesis, you will be asked to decide upon online accessibility. For a thesis to be visible in DTU Findit, it must have been approved and graded. Student theses are rarely harvested by Google.
People without a DTU login do not have access to the full-text version of your assignment. If you want to share it, you must send it yourself.
Once you have uploaded your thesis, you will not be able to make changes to the document or upload a new version. You can only change the online accessibility of the full text in DTU Findit.
