Course Contents

This is the second of the three courses that constitute the Masters Thesis, which is a research oriented work at the forefront of knowledge within the specialization of the student.

A student registered in this course is expected to implement the objectives of the Thesis, using the methodology proposed in the AEEE597 (Research Preparation and Proposal) course, according to the approved planning. For a typical full time student, this course is taken concurrently with the AEEE599 (Thesis Writing and Presentation).
Recommended and/or required reading:
Textbooks
  • No specific book is assigned. Students are expected to consult a variety of information sources, including textbooks, manuals, scientific and research papers.

    Planned learning activities and teaching methods

    The Student is expected to use appropriate analytical, modelling and experimental methodologies for the implementation of the objectives of the Master’s project approved by the student’s Assessment Committee in the AEEE597 (Research Preparation and Proposal) course.

    The Student is expected to meet regularly with his Thesis Advisor to ensure that the set objectives, methodologies and planning are met. 

    For a typical full time student, this course is taken concurrently with the AEEE599 (Thesis Writing and Presentation). The assessment for both courses (AEEE598 and AEEE599) is done using the same criteria and weights, with the two courses assigned the some grade. If a student completes the requirements of the AEEE598 course, without completing AEEE599, then he is assigned a “Satisfactory Progress (SP)” grade for AEEE598. The final grade is granted to the student with the completion of both courses (AEEE598 and AEEE599).
