The thesis is done in the last two semesters of the BE degree program. For full-time students, seven hours per week in the first semester and fourteen hours per week in the second semester are devoted to directed laboratory and research work on an approved course under guidance of members of the lecturing Staff of the Schools of Computer Science and Information Systems. Generally, the thesis involves the design, construction, and testing of a software application, but the thesis could be an exploration and evaluation of some aspects of a software development method. Each student is required to demonstrate the outcome of the thesis work, and present a written thesis at the end of the second semester.
