The Thesis Project (Parts A and B) is carried out in the last two sessions of the BE degree course for full-time students. Six hours per week in the first session, and twelve hours per week in the second session are devoted to directed laboratory and research work on an approved subject under guidance of members of the lecturing staff. Part-time students may need to attend the University full-time in their final session or attend for one further part-time session, if facilities are not available for the thesis to be done at their workplace. Typically, the thesis involves the design and construction of experimental apparatus together with practical tests. Each student is required to present a seminar as part of the requirements for SOLA4910, Thesis Part A. Satisfactory performance in subject SOLA4910 is a prerequisite for progress to subject SOLA4911. A written thesis report must be submitted on each project by the Tuesday of the 14th week of the second session of enrolment to satisfy the requirements for SOLA4911, Thesis Part B.
