Prospective students in Thesis A are expected to have consulted with supervisors and selected a topic of interest at the end of third year, guided by the advertised list of suggested thesis topics and supervisors. Availability of topics is limited and students should undertake to speak with prospective supervisors as soon as possible. Students who are unable to secure a supervisor and topic will be allocated a supervisor by the unit coordinator. Alternatively, students may do a thesis with a supervisor in industry or in another university department. In this case, the student must also find a second supervisor within the School of AMME.
