Thesis Submission Guidelines: 10 tips to avoid disaster | James Hayton's PhD advice website
This curriculum worksheet and this list of thesis preparation guidelines may be useful to students as they prepare for writing their theses and prepare their theses documents for submission. It is a good idea for students to start looking for a thesis advisor and readers as early in their time at ACT as they can. In addition to being a good way to confirm the availability of faculty they would like to work with, it also gives them an opportunity to clarify their choice of topic, as well as network. Once students have confirmed their topics, they might reach out to the ACT archivist to discuss research resources that may be particularly relevant to their topics, including databases and special collections at MIT and elsewhere. Their thesis advisor does need to be a tenured or tenure track ACT faculty member.
