Architecture students dig themselves a grave when they begin to romanticize their thesis projects.
It is hard to blame them, however, when you consider that the thesis project is viewed as the culmination of a multi-year program which is rooted as deeply in art and theory as it is in building technology.
Also, they can list out their "cool" topic after their thesis is successful.
Lastly, if people who have completed their thesis can list out their topics here with a brief description, it will be very helpful.
Over and OUTPeter N hello all, I would like to work on conservation or some like historic / archaeological museum as my thesis topic,but I am not sure from where and how to start my study for the thesis. Hi everyone I am Architecture student studying in 8th sem , in our clg faculty has told us to decide on our thesis now only as it would be easier in the last sem , So I decided on Architectural conversation and restoration as my topic, like I want to explore places in which are abandoned monuments in India which has not got recognition yet , I want to work on those places , so I need a opinion on my choice of this topic as well as how strong or good is topic to be taken as thesis my topic ?
I know this sounds silly as the list may be never-ending.That's why i said design instead of architecture--of course this could be either interesting or totally meaningless... The op is not doing the work properly because the design would be the survey instrument and not just a blunt demand for responses.Added to that- if this was indeed the use of an online platform to test a hypothesis about crowd sourcing, the thesis is already in danger of coming to a sudden halt, based on a tiny sample and lack of response. Ask a question about the built environment, then propose a solution and research how the proposed solution has worked in the past.Students need to ask themselves several other questions: Is the topic significant enough? With so many factors to consider and deadlines closing in, students easily end up making decisions that they regret later.Here are eight tips to help you make an informed choice on the matter: Thesis work at the undergraduate level strongly differs from that at the graduate or doctoral level, and it is important to understand the rationale behind its inclusion in the curriculum.Thesis topic-What is the state of education if students believe crowd sourcing will generate authentic, effective learning experiences and how can design mitigate the negative effect of this learning "model?" The term crowdsourcing to me somehow implies a global crowd rather than immediate stakeholders at a specific geographic location.Many students give in to the natural temptation to do too much by picking topics or issues that are too expansive, and therefore almost impossible to execute in a short time-frame.A tip would be to start with the simplest version of a topic and add in extra complexity later if the circumstances allow it.As architecture students head to their final year of BArch, half-crazy from years’ worth of scraped fingers, ghastly juries, sleepless nights, and a general lack of social life, they encounter the mighty problem of choosing a thesis topic.There are many subjects to choose from, but a personal interest in a particular subject is just one of the many factors that should influence this decision. The process can be daunting, for the decision has many consequences; sometimes, the choice of topic alone can mean the difference between the success and failure of a thesis.
