Ph.D. students at NSU's College of Engineering and Computing complete a dissertation as the major component of their degree program. The Dissertation Guide is a document that the faculty have maintained for many years to provide guidance on getting started, details on the process of moving through the dissertation milestones, rubrics faculty use to evaluate students throughout the dissertation process, and detailed instructions for formatting.
Because the process for establishing candidacy changed for students beginning fall 2014, the faculty maintain two versions of the guide.
The guide has been revised and refined substantially over the years with input from both students and faculty. Please make use of it, and let your dissertation advisor know if you have comments.
