Undergraduate Thesis

Topic Selection (CME and MMMB)

Topic Selection (Civil, Mining and Environmental)

Please be informed that students enrolling in ENGG452/3 Thesis A/B (Annual 2021) will receive a SOLS mail in February advising them to nominate preferences from a list of topics and supervisors. At that time, students will be provided with instructions on how to access the database.

In the meantime, students are able to approach individual academics directly to supervise them on particular topics of interest. If the supervisor agrees, then the student will advise the thesis coordinator when they receive the SOLS mail in February

Selection of Project Area

Typical thesis projects for final year students will be available in the areas indicated below. Students who will be undertaking thesis should indicate their preferences on the bottom section of this page. Preferences should be chosen from those listed below as appropriate for the degree enrolled and should be recorded by using the code, e.g., for Electrical Engineers – 1st Pref.: A.1; 2nd Pref.: C.1, etc. If desired, students may also write down specific areas, e.g., A.1 Power Quality – Monitoring. Before making selections, please read this form carefully.


Students should select at least two preferences; the third is optional. It should be noted that whilst attempts are made to take preferences into account, these are only one of several factors affecting thesis topic allocation and the examples given are only that - examples.


Eligible students should complete the preference selection form below ASAP.

  • Electrical Engineering students: can select preferences from any of the areas.
  • Computer engineering students: can select preferences from areas B and C only.
  • Telecommunications engineering students: select preferences from C only.
  • Mechatronics Engineering students: can select preferences from areas A, B and C.1 only, e.g., A.1 and B.2 or A.2 and C.1.

Students are also encouraged to explore possible projects with staff. If there is a project that you are interested in, please discuss with the relevant staff member and then submit the online selection of project area form. This form should be submitted at least three weeks prior to the start of the session. Late submissions will not be considered
