Thesis B (CIVL4023)


Honours Thesis provides an opportunity for students to conduct original research. Students will generally work in groups, although planning and writing of the thesis will be done individually; i.e., a separate thesis must be submitted by each student. Only in exceptional circumstances and by approval of Thesis course coordinator and the relevant academic supervisor concerned will a student be permitted to undertake a project individually.
Honours Thesis is a major task and is to be conducted with work spread over most of the year, in two successive Units of Study of 6 credits points each, Honours Thesis A (CIVL4022) and Honours Thesis B (CIVL4023). This particular unit of study, which must be preceded by or be conducted concurrently with CIVL4022 Honours Thesis A, should cover the second half of the work required for a complete "final year" thesis project. In particular, it should include completion of all components of the research or investigation project planned but not undertaken or completed in CIVL4022 Honours Thesis A.
