Dissertation - Topic and Superviser

The text below is an extract from the MSc handbook for students.


The first task, which should be completed by the middle of term 2, is to decide upon a general area of research (this can be rather vague, e.g., coding theory, symmetric cryptography, quantum computing etc.) and a suitable project supervisor.

Course lecturers, the adviser and the programme director may help in suggesting research areas and finding a supervisor.

The supervisor will help you to find a specific topic in the area of  your interest.

Note:  You are not guaranteed the supervisor of your choice, though we try to ensure that all students have a supervisor who is willing to supervise their chosen topic. If you are unable to find a supervisor or a research area then you should see the programme director during the first half of term.
