Students will be required to do either a 10-credit thesis or project. Allowing a choice between thesis and project allows a wide range of education outcomes to suit your background and interests. A thesis might involve either the testing of a new idea or a synthesis or analysis of existing ideas. A project might involve the production of a product, such as a complex software system. With either option a student would be expected to work closely with a faculty advisor whose research interests complement the thesis/project topic.
