Calendar

If completing a Thesis:

A Master's Thesis may be substituted for the Graduate Design projects course sequence. This thesis must be a design thesis (including design and fabrication work). For the thesis to be approved, a one-page abstract and proposed work plan need to be submitted to the design faculty. This proposal should be submitted as early as possible, but no later than the end of the student's second semester. Approval is not guaranteed, so please be proactive in submitting this proposal as soon as possible. In addition, one of the design faculty must be on the student’s thesis committee.
