The project report must be at least two pages in length and must include a summary of the work performed for the project, as well as information on how to access any artifacts (e.g., code repositories, web sites, or slide presentations) produced as part of the project.
More comprehensive, more detailed project reports are highly encouraged and may be required of a student at the committee's discretion.
For detailed information on submissions, please see Thesis & Dissertation Submissions.
Masters students who will defend a Masters Thesis or a Masters Project must submit a committee approval form to the CSE Department at least two weeks prior to the defense itself.
Students attempting to enroll will be automatically placed on a waitlist until a Research Proposal Form is received in the department office.
Please submit forms to the Graduate Program Coordinator.Although these instructions mainly talk about doing an MS thesis, most of the things are the same for a Ph D thesis. Whats the difference between a MS 'thesis' and a 'project'?There are two different ways to get an CS master's degree here: by doing a thesis and a project.For the project you take more courses, in the thesis you do more research and have a more formal presentation at the end. A thesis uses a project as a proof of concept, but also describes what is conceptually novel and how this work fits into the context of existing work in the field.If you ever intend to do a Ph D you must do an MS thesis first.Approval by the CSE Department of the committee composition as declared on that form is a prerequisite to successful completion of the student's masters degree.The committee must consist of at least three people well qualified to judge the technical merits of the thesis or project, and at least two members of the committee must be CSE Department Regular Faculty.The School of Engineering requires a draft for formatting approval, final oral defense, electronic submission, and a hardcopy submission.Deadlines for the formatting approval and final submissions are posted on the academic calendar.Panter PDF Evaluating the Presence of a Victim Cache on an Arm Processor, Lakshmi Vidya Peri PDF A Systematic Approach to Verify an Embedded Capacitive Touchscreen System, Jeffrey Lee Richardson PDF Dynamic Transmission Scheduling for Contention Mitigation in Wireless Sensor Networks, Suryanarayana Mahesh Tatapudi PDF An Exploratory System for Collaborative Decision-Making in Community Planning, Aaron Dale Wells PDF Visualizing and Managing Genetic Information in Animal Pedigrees, Allen Brady Cannon PDF Dynamic Diffusion for Congestion Avoidance in Wireless Sensor Networks, Sri Divya Deenadayalan PDF Hadoop and Hive as Scalable Alternatives to RDBMS: A Case Study, Marissa Rae Hollingsworth PDF Reliable Bulk Data Dissemination Protocol in Wireless Sensor Networks, Sri Haritha Kuchipudi PDF Android Application for Cluster Job Management, Christopher Schance PDF On the K-Mer Frequency Spectra of Organism Genome and Proteome Sequences with a Preliminary Machine Learning Assessment of Prime Predictability, Nathan O.Schmidt PDF Congestion Avoidance Energy Efficient MAC Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks, Alexander Sundling PDF Object Oriented Implementation of the Parallel Toolkit Library, Sandhya Vinnakota PDF Congestion Mitigation by Traffic Dispersion in Wireless Sensor Networks, Sreekanth Yalamanchili PDF Improving Data Freshness to Enhance the Quality of Observations in Wireless Sensor Networks, Ramya Bala Ammu PDF Designing Reliable High-Performance Storage Systems for HPC Environments, Lucas Scott Hindman PDF Methods for Multilevel Parallelism on GPU Clusters: Application to a Multigrid Accelerated Navier-Stokes Solver, Dana A.
