The student will submit  a digital copy of the thesis (in one Pdf  file) to the library in the department of industrial and management engineering and will receive approval in writing of such. At the end of the completion proceedings at the Technion, the student will submit the three signed copies to the offices of the economics field at Haifa University.

Once all of the graduation approvals reach the Graduation Procedures Office, the file of the student will be checked in order to ensure that all of the graduation proceedings were completed properly. If documents are missing or an amendment is required for any of the submitted documents, the Graduation Procedures Office will contact the student. The responsibility to ensure that the file is complete and finished is on the student alone.

The date for eligibility for the degree is set forth as the date of the  departmental library approval. After completing the academic requirements and the financial obligations, the students file is ready for the examination by the Degree Committee. The Degree Committee of the Technion convenes six times annually (on an average of once every two months, and less frequently during the summer). The Degrees Committee examines the basis of the students files and checks whether the students have complied with all of the academic requirements and fulfilled all of their requirements at the Technion.

After the approval of the Degrees Committee, a list of degree recipients is transferred for the approval of the Technions Senate members. Within five days from the date the notice was sent to the Senate, if there is no opposition, the approval for eligibility that includes approval for the completion of studies and an approved grade list is sent out. The approvals are sent directly to the students home.

The diplomas are granted in a ceremony once per year.
