10166AR802 – DISSERTATION L T P/S C xx x 2 Dissertation offers an opportunity to look at architecture, history and design primarily through textual. However, like design, dissertation involves process of observation, reflection and abstraction. Students are encouraged to choose any topic of there interest. They may range from analyzing the works of an architect, history, typological changes, writing, design process and many more. The dissertation should state its objectives, followed by exhaustive documentation and arguments. The emphasis however, could vary according to the topic. The dissertation study may lead to the thesis in final semester. The dissertation proposal in about 1500 words stating the topic issues to be explored and the scope must be submitted. After approval the work would be periodically reviewed. A well written report of a minimum 15,000 words must be submitted in the prescribed format, if any provided by the University. The student would subsequently make a presentation of his/her work and defend them. REFERENCES 1.
