Thesis / Project / Internship information:

    2. Or Mr. Moin Mostakim
  • CSE400 can be a thesis or project or an internship with a company: any of these 3 requires a supervisor from the department.
  • Register for pre-thesis as soon as you are done with 75 credits, have an early start, get more time and do well, insha’Allah
  • Internship may be independent of CSE400 or under it. Unless you are facing financial difficulties, try an internship after graduation (independent of CSE400) until you secure a full-time job and then proceed to masters.
  • A thesis consists of three parts spread over three semesters [Pre-thesis 1 (p1), Pre-thesis 2 (p2), Final thesis semester (thesis/cse400)
  • Sometimes p1/p2/thesis may need to be repeated or may take more time, so it might become 4 or 5 semesters instead of 3, so start early
  • Students may start a pre-thesis from any semester by filling up P1 form at the beginning of that semester after receiving notice.
  • Register for CSE400 only once in the final defense semester. If a student doesn't go through defense/presentation, it usually remains as ‘i’ grade. No need to retake this unless you see an ‘F’ grade.
