How Are Thesis Projects Found?

Students are responsible for finding their own thesis projects. The project may be based on a new Co-op term, an earlier Co-op term, or it could originate through the research activities of faculty members. At least one semester prior to the semester you wish to start work on your thesis project, you should contact professors, companies, and agencies to line up project work. You may also seek advice from the Co-op Coordinators who may well know of appropriate projects available with ENSC faculty, other university departments, or in industry.

When your thesis is part of one of your Co-op terms, you must ensure that your employer understands what constitutes an acceptable thesis project and that all members of your supervisory committee agree that the work you are undertaking will meet the criteria.
