About Thesis Preparation at UCI

You may not be ready to consider a thesis or even a dissertation right away, but it should not be far from your thinking.  By the end of the first year you will begin working closely with a faculty advisor and formulating your research topic for your culmination project.  It is smart to think about the final product from the onset, so as to learn how you will format it and prepare the document so that the writing, revisions, and updating can take place easily and seamlessly.  There are many documents to direct you in this endeavor and some beginning resources include the UCI Thesis and Dissertation Manual
