Management of Projects MSc 2016-17

Dissertation Preparation and Supervision: Student Profile Form

The allocated dissertation project topic area forms the basis of the Project Management Research Methods (PMRM) coursework (MACE 60050) and the dissertation.  The PMRM coursework provides students with the opportunity to do significant background reading on the allocated project topic, develop an initial understanding of the topic area, and develop an initial framework for the specific dissertation project.  

It is expected that students do substantial background reading to prepare the PMRM coursework and to provide the foundation for the preparation of the dissertation.  It is also expected that students prepare diligently for each meeting with their Supervisor.  Initially, to prepare for the first and second meetings you must do sufficient background reading to enable you to discuss the topic area and which issue or issues within the allocated topic area you aim to focus on within your specific project. You must also read the ‘Introduction’ and ‘Section 1’ of the Dissertation Handbook prior to your first meeting with your Supervisor.

The aim of this form is to provide your designated Supervisor with some background information.  The contents will be used to facilitate the supervision process.  You should complete this form, and send it to your Supervisor as an email attachment, prior to your first meeting.  When completing the form you must write in sentences, and provide sufficient detail to clearly communicate the information.
