Thesis Guidelines for the College of Technology

College of Technology

A Senior Honors Thesis in technology typically arises from close collaboration with a faculty member on an existing research project. Ideally, you will identify a significant aspect of that research and craft a smaller project representing your own work. The thesis should include an introduction explaining the relevance of your work to the broader field of study, a brief literature review, pertinent explanations of all technical innovations and processes, and an appropriate representation of results achieved. On average, the thesis will be between 30-60 pages. Here is a sample prospectus for Engineering and Technology students.
