Once the selection of the thesis topic is made, the student will organise his or her own schedule of meetings with their Supervisor (typically a member of the staff of the School of Surveying & Spatial Information Systems). There may also be a co-supervisor for some of the projects. 1.3 Staff Absences During Session: CRʼs absences in weeks 1, 6, 11 & 13 will not affect the course. There will not be face-to-face classes every week, see Course Schedule. 2. Educational Aspects of the Course 2.1 How this Course Relates to Others in the Program This fourth year undergraduate 6UOC course in the B.E. (Surveying) or B.E. (GIS) programs is unlike any attempted by a student up to this point. The aim of the course (together with the Session 2 extension – GMAT4015) is to provide the student with an opportunity to carry out a substantial project-type or research-type study program on a topic they select, under the direct supervision of a SSIS staff member. The primary objective of GMAT4010 is to carry out the appropriate background literature review and preliminary research that is needed to develop a Thesis or Research Proposal (or “blueprint”) for the Thesis, which will be undertaken in Session 2, in GMAT4015 Thesis B. GMAT4010 is therefore a prerequisite for GMAT4015. The thesis is scheduled for the last year of study in the B.E. (Surveying) or B.E. (GIS) programs. Hence students that have NOT completed all courses scheduled for Years 1 to 3 must be able to explain how they can complete all outstanding courses by the end of Session 1, 2011, without timetable clashes. Submit this documentation with your topic selection and attach timetables of S1/2011 and S2/2011. The Course Coordinator will maintain regular communications with students via email
