Content

This unit will help students to select a viable thesis topic and leads them towards research and the writing up of the thesis in the following trimester. Presentations and seminars form part of the unit learning. The presentations provide the grounding for research topic development, approach and methodology. The seminars function as a forum in which students can increase their knowledge of theoretical positions in the built environment and identify interdisciplinary positions. The students discuss possible uses of these critical positions for their final thesis and design projects. A research report is intended as an effective launch-pad for thesis and design work, as well as for life-long learning.
