What Defines an Appropriate Thesis Project?

An acceptable thesis project will allow you to demonstrate your ability to work independently on a problem of reasonably large scope and to come up with a good solution. Your project must be a solid and cohesive body of work that requires a good amount of independent effort. The work need not be original nor involve research, so you may implement or analyze something that has been done elsewhere. The project should also draw on fourth year material and demonstrate the application of engineering principles at the senior undergraduate level. Your role in the project should require you to display initiative in conducting the project.
