Winter 2015 and Spring 2015 quarters
To complete their degree, MES students are required to complete a 16 credit thesis,* the prospectus for which is finished in the Fall quarter during Case Studies. At the end of Case Studies, and prior to Winter quarter, students are assigned a faculty mentor, or "reader." Each reader is assigned a CRN (course reference number) for Winter quarter and a different CRN for Spring quarter, and students will be notified of their reader's CRN by email from the MES office prior to registration for each quarter. Students will take eight thesis credits each quarter. In addition to the thesis, students are required to attend a bi-weekly thesis workshop, which is usually offered every other Tuesday evening throughout the Winter and Spring quarters. Students will be notified of exact details during Fall quarter. See our Thesis Resources page for more information.
*This requirement applies to all students who started MES in Fall 2011 or later. If you started in a prior year, please see your MES student handbook for your specific requirements.
