THESIS / PROJECT (OPTIONAL)
& MS students may register for Thesis (06 credits) in lieu
of two courses which are optional (minor) and may be done in
place of thesis / project.
work for thesis is supervised by the Thesis Committee that
consists of Primary Advisor and two members. Director
. Thesis has
& MS Thesis can be completed at the end of final semester
however a student may extend the research work for up to a
maximum of two years. In that case, the student must remain
enrolled in the Thesis (3 credits) in each semester till
