Course Contents

This is the third 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.

After conducting their research work, students are expected to deliver a detailed project report that describes their research work and also present their project outcomes to their project Assessment Committee, as well as defend their work during an oral presentation. This course is graded in conjunction with the Graduate Research (AEEE598). Both courses are assigned the same grade.
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 methodsThe Student is expected to work independently to produce a written report on the work of the Master’s Thesis, and to prepare a presentation for the oral defence of the Thesis.

    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 his 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).
