Report and critically comment on published research and scientific work. Propose and justify a methodology to be employed for the implementation of a Master s level Thesis. Demonstrate competency in the methodologies needed for a successful research project proposal, planning, and implementation. Employ written and oral communication skills. communicate effectively through a variety of media including oral, visual, written, diagrammatic and on-line This is the first of the three courses that constitute the Masters Thesis, which is a research oriented work at the forefront of knowledge within the specialization of the student. By the end of the course, the student must submit and present to his Assessment Committee a proposal for his Master s Thesis. In this proposal, the student is expected to propose the topic of his project, providing the detailed objectives and expected contributions of his work, give a complete literature review of the current state of knowledge on the issues related to the proposal, and suggest a methodology and planning for the implementation of the Thesis. Slide 15/15 MDME516 - Research Preparation and Proposal Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Assessment methods and criteria: At the beginning of the course, students must consult with the academic staff and decide on the topic of their Masters Thesis. After deciding on the topic of the Master Thesis, the Program Coordinator, in consultation with the student and other related members of the Department, form an Assessment Committee for the student, consisting of three members. Two of these members must be from the academic staff related to the specialization of the student, where one is the student s Thesis Advisor. The third member can be any member of the academic staff of the Program, or an external qualified person. The Student is expected to meet regularly with his Thesis Advisor to set the objectives and contributions of the Thesis, and decide on the methodology to be used. Suitability and completeness of set objectives: 20% Adequacy of sources consulted: 20% Proposed methodology and planning: 20% Quality of proposal report: 20% Oral Presentation: 20% Slide 16/15 MDME517 - Graduate Research Learning outcomes of the course unit: Course contents: Carry out investigation in the forefront of knowledge in the area related to topic of the student s Thesis. Demonstrate competency in the methodologies needed for a successful research project implementation. Employ analytical, modelling and experimental methodologies for the implementation of a research project. Use appropriate software and hardware tools to support the implementation and evaluation of a research project. Formulate appropriate assessment criteria, and evaluate the outcome of a research project. Draw conclusions on the investigations of a research project, and propose areas for improvements and future developments. This is the second of the three courses that constitute the Masters Thesis, which is a research oriented work at the forefront of knowledge within the specialization of the student. A student registered in this course is expected to implement the objectives of the Thesis, using the methodology proposed in the MME516 (Research Preparation and Proposal) course, according to the approved planning. For a typical full time student, this course is taken concurrently with the MME518 (Thesis Writing and Presentation). Slide 17/15 MDME517 - Graduate Research Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Assessment methods and criteria: The Student is expected to use appropriate analytical, modelling and experimental methodologies for the implementation of the objectives of the Master s project approved by the student s Assessment Committee in the MME516 (Research Preparation and Proposal) course. The Student is expected to meet regularly with his Thesis Advisor to ensure that the set objectives, methodologies and planning are met. For a typical full time student, this course is taken concurrently with the MME518 (Thesis Writing and Presentation). The assessment for both courses (MME517 and MME518) is done using the same criteria and weights, with the two courses assigned the some grade. If a student completes the requirements of the MME517 course, without completing MME518, then he is assigned a Satisfactory Progress (SP) grade for MME517. The final grade is granted to the student with the completion of both courses (MME517 and MME518). Assessment Weights: Adequacy of sources consulted: 20% Design methodology / implementation: 20% Evaluation methodology: 20% Presentation and discussion of results: 20% Oral Presentation: 20% Slide 18/15 MDME518 - Thesis Writing and Presentation Learning outcomes of the course unit: Course contents: Produced a structured written report on the work of a Master s level research project. Critically comment on the results of a research work and relate to other published research and scientific work. Employ a variety of tools and media to present the work of a Master s level research project. Defend orally the implementation and evaluation methodologies employed, as well as the outcomes of a Master s level research project. This is the third of the three courses that constitute the Masters Thesis, which is a research oriented work at the forefront of knowledge within the specialization of the student. After conducting their research work, students are expected to deliver a detailed project report that describes their research work and also present their project outcomes to their project Assessment Committee, as well as defend their work during an oral presentation. This course is graded in conjunction with the Graduate Research (MME17). Both courses are assigned the same grade. Slide 19/15 MDME518 - Thesis Writing and Presentation Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Assessment methods and criteria: The Student is expected to work independently to produce a written report on the work of the Master s Thesis, and to prepare a presentation for the oral defence of the Thesis. For a typical full time student, this course is taken concurrently with the MME517 (Graduate Research). The assessment for both courses (MME517 and MME518) is done using the same criteria and weights, with the two courses assigned the some grade. If a student completes the requirements of the MME517 course, without completing MME518, then his assigned a Satisfactory Progress (SP) grade for MME517. The final grade is granted to the student with the completion of both courses (MME517 and MME518). Assessment Weights: Adequacy of sources consulted: 20% Design methodology / implementation: 20% Evaluation methodology: 20% Presentation and discussion of results: 20% Oral Presentation: 20% Slide 20/15 Frederick University Regulations for Master Thesis The graduate students at Frederick University enrolled for Master Thesis project for the requirements of Master Programme should follow the regulations outlined in the present document, which will be monitored by the allocated Supervisor, the Programme Coordinator and the Master Thesis Evaluation Committee. Requirements: Master thesis allocation form. Project formulation presentation (including objectives, proposed methodology, steps and expected results outline) (during the first week of the semester). Weekly hour-meeting with supervisor Executive summary (1000 words concise summary of the project) Submission of Thesis report 3 hard copies hard-bounded and an electronic copy Oral examination to the Master Thesis evaluation Committee (after submission of Thesis report) thesis from a Greek word meaning position, refers to an intellectual proposition. Dissertation - from Latin dissertātiō, meaning discourse. The word thesis is used as part of a Bachelors or Masters course. Dissertation is applied to a Doctorate. Slide 21/15 Frederick University Regulations for Master Thesis Thesis structure and content: 1. Abstract 2. Introduction 3. Literature review 4. Methodology and techniques description 5. Formulation of the practical problem and solution with appropriate methodology 6.
