PR2560 - Technical Thesis I
The technical thesis enables the student completing a Diploma in Electrical Engineering Technology (Power & Controls) Co-op program to demonstrate the application of skills and knowledge developed throughout the program. Students taking this course will work with minimal supervision on a project, under the guidance of a faculty member. The student can work independently or in teams of two to carry out an in-depth study of a problem, design or technical application, and fully document and present their findings. At the end of this course, the student will have completed a proposal of their technical thesis that will be completed in the following academic semester of their program. Students should commence planning for the course at the beginning of the final year of studies. Since the project and report are to be prepared through independent study, the assigned hours represent only part of the time that students are expected to allocate to the course. Regular meetings with a faculty supervisor will be scheduled within the assigned hours and it is mandatory that students attend these meetings. This course will be co-delivered to the students by a technical instructor and a communications instruct.
