Rockfield College of Sciences and Technology that has completed two-third of
the total required courses of the enrolled graduate degree program can
decide to start writing the Graduate Thesis and Dissertation for the chosen
specialization subject in the enrolled graduate program.
Academic Thesis will lead to formal definition of hypotheses and some form
of hypothesis ‘testing" - this is possible through a process of data collection and analysis. Graduate Thesis is
a scientific thesis written indepnedently by the student on
Master and Doctoral programs - the Thesis will enable student to specialise and
elaborates on the chosen subject and topic of the research
Internship Thesis motivates real-world experiences that allow our students to gain
first-hand knowledge about specific industries and corporate cultures, whereof
lessons learned during classroom courseworks can be directly applied in the real
world at the organizations. It will enable students to looks at a general
phenomenon around a particular organization or industry, reviews the
literature that has been written on the topic of the thesis, and then applies
this literature to the case of the organization or industry the student has been working for.
The internship can be
completed in Switzerland or abroad at an established corporation or organization. The students
will choose the position of the internship
Academic Thesis and Internship-Based Thesis:
(a) Academic Thesis
will mostly lead to the formal definition of hypotheses and some form
of hypothesis ‘testing’ (through a process of data collection and analysis).
Thesis will typically not define formal hypotheses, but will explore
existing theories or concepts and derive some general ideas from
these theories. These ideas will then be used to explore the situation, problem
and questions facing the organization.
Student that decided for Internship
should have as content a practical problem, and
able to apply previously acquired
academic knowledge to propose and possibly
implement a solution to the problem. This means that
the Internship Thesis should
identify the problem, identify alternative solutions, propose one solution, and
then indicate how the proposed solution should be implemented within the
organization in which your
internship took place. The
student should demonstrate
systemic understanding of the received body of
academic knowledge pertaining to the
chosen specialization of
enrolled degree program.
Internship Thesis will be a demonstration of academic
maturity by students on graduate degree programs. Students on Master and
Doctorate programs must demonstrate sufficient knowledge and command of academic
research activities - that should include profound ability to:
define the problem that is being investigated;
review and summarize received relevant literatures
and select relevant literatures;
and apply appropriate research methods to
solve the problem from theoretical
or scientific point of view;
describe tangible objectives
analyze empirical data and draw
appropriate conclusions and recommendations;
to the problem in actual practice
of the organization.
