Thesis Writing

What is a Thesis?
Thesis is the document describing the Project Work carried out as a part of partial fulfillment of academic requirement to get a degree. It describes the complete process of the project starting from the problem formulation to the solution and conclusions in a Scientific and Methodical manner.

What is the significance of Thesis ?

While carrying out the project, the delegates get an opportunity to work on technical problem and bring out the solution by following scientific and technical methods. During this phase the delegates put all their learning and apply the theoretical knowledge and analytical skills gained during the course to derive the solutions.

What is the significance of Thesis..?

It involves a systematic approach to document the proceedings of the project and gives a thorough training for the candidate to re-look at the presentation skills. It is a proud document a student can produce to prove his/her capability to analyse and solve an engineering problem. Thesis are often considered to be the testimonials for the candidates who aspire for a good job or higher education.

What level of work is expected in a Masters thesis?

Masters thesis is just one step below the Ph.D. thesis in terms of originality and contribution. However, finding solution to the original engineering problem using the scientific and technical methods would suffice at Masters level. Although new invention in the work is not expected, the originality in the solution and solution procedure is very much sought.

What is Size of a Masters Thesis ?

A Masters thesis will fill around 60-80 pages in A4, inclusive of certificates, declarations, references, appendices and main text. A too small thesis represent the inadequacy of the work content. A too big thesis reflects the inability of the candidate to write a concise report.
