Writing A Master's Thesis In Engineering: 5 Basic Rules


It's all about success. Obtaining your degree will lead to a successful to job with higher earnings. To accomplish such a feat, you have to start with your thesis. Sometimes your school will keep successful theses from other students, and you will be able to look through them for examples and inspiration.

It might sound difficult at first, but every thesis consists of the same structure. As long as you follow the guidelines, it doesn't have to be as difficult as it sounds. Chances are you've written something like this before, perhaps in middle school or high school. This is the same thing on a higher level. The good news is; you already know how it goes. All that changes is the subject matter and information.

Here are five basic rules to follow:

  1. Choose a topic that interests you. You have to convince your student committee that your research and findings are worth of a degree. So choose with something you like; something that is practical and showcases your passion for the subject at the same time.
  2. Have a plan and stick to it. You should have some sort of outline to follow; that way you can't go wrong.
  3. Research. You have to find all the information you can. You have to present facts and data. You will base all of your writing on the information that you find. Don't forget to keep track of your sources.
  4. Organize. It doesn't matter at what speed you collect your information. Whether it's slowly over time or large stacks of papers all at once, you need a place to keep it until you're ready to write.
  5. Be clear and consistent. Using vague, or general words is a big no-no. You should go over your wording/sentencing to make sure you that it presents clearly.

The basics are all the same. Start with your introductory paragraph and state your thesis. Give as much information and statistics as you can to support it. You should pose a question and then answer that very same question.

Now you have to explain how you answered that question. This is where your research and sources come in handy. After that, all that's left is your conclusion. Summarize what you did, explain what did and didn't work and why it did or didn't work.

The process is simple when you break it down. You will do fine!
