Engineering Thesis


The structure of an engineering thesis is as follows:

  1. Introduction
  2. Literature review
  3. Requirements
  4. Architecture
  5. Design and implementation
  6. Evaluation
  7. Conclusions

Please note that the evaluation should be defined before you begin implementation (we understand that some processes are iterative, but you should at least try). This avoids evaluating only the successful aspects of the work. For us, partial achievements or failures are also of interest and part of an honest evaluation (and they won’t hurt a student’s grade either). Once you have decided on the evaluation, please send it to your supervisor.


See the finished thesis category on our blog. (At present that’s all theses. Need to distinguish types there.)
