Many of the theses, dissertations, and final year projects written by the students of the Department of Computing and Communication Technologies and the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mathematical Sciences are kept in the store room of Wheatley Library. We only keep those theses, dissertations, and projects that are awarded at least 60%. We store these theses, dissertations, and projects as they may be of interest to you, be relevant to an assignment you are working on, or give you an idea of how to structure and present your own thesis, dissertation, or project.
You may request up to four
dissertations, theses, or projects at a time, and they will be issued to you for a period of 4 hours only. No
dissertation, thesis, or project may be taken out of the Library.
1. Go to the LibrarySearch and type in one or more words that describe what you are looking for (e.g. cloud computing) and click Search. This will give you a list of all the resources available that match your keywords, including books, journals, and dissertations. To see only the dissertations, theses, and projects that match your keywords click the Thesis/dissertation filter on the left hand side (under the All Formats heading).
2. If you would like to read a dissertation, thesis, or project then make a note of its shelfmark (e.g. C123, M16, E96) and take it to the Library counter. Dissertations, theses, and projects are issued to you for four hours, are only for use within the Library, and you may have up to four issued to you at a time.
At the LibrarySearch page click More search options for the ability to search for dissertations by keyword, course, author, supervisor, and module number:
I would like to see what dissertations, theses, and projects have been written on racing cars. I go to LibrarySearch and type rac* car* (rac* will find race and racing, car* will find car and cars) into the search box and click Search. The results that appear include books and journals so I click the filter on the left called Thesis/dissertation (found under the Format heading). The results now only include dissertations and thesis that match my rac* car* search.
I am most interested in the dissertations written recently so I click on the Sorted by drop-down box (top right of the screen), select Date (newest first). I look through the list and find two dissertations that look interesting. I write down their shelfmarks and take them to the Library counter. The Library staff at the counter get the two theses for me and I can now read them in the Library for the next four hours.
