I assume you are about to work on a master thesis for the chair of Architectural Principles and Theory, so the following information will be mostly customized for you. If you are working on a thesis for another chair or program and want me to be your advisor or supervisor please contact me first.
NOTE: Please familiarize yourself with the Departments´s common Completing your master´s thesis page first. I have also collected the most important documents (Thesis Guide and Evaluation Criteria) on my Resources page. Please take a look especially at the Master Thesis guide you can find there.
See that you understand the roles of supervisor and advisor. If I am your advisor you need to be in contact with your supervisor at least in the following stages of the process:
- choosing the topic
- completing the first set of 10 credits
- completing the second set of 10 credits
- getting the permit to submit the final version of the thesis
I try to have a smooth, structured and clear process with each thesis author.
setting clear timetable and goals together in the beginning of the process (make an appointment)
meeting at regular, preset intervals (usually 5 times for about an hour)
submitting the drafts on Thesis Versions page for those meetings in advance for me to review in order to have relevant feedback discussion in each meeting
Before you can submit your work to the appropriate return box in "Thesis versions", 1. enrol yourself to this workspace by clicking Syllabus on the upper right of the page > Self enrolment (login with Aalto account is required).
