The award of the degree of Master of Technology (M.Tech) at the Faculty of Technology requires the completion of a thesis after the 3rd semester, and submission of the thesis document. From this year all the thesis work at CEPT University will be in the form of Directed Research Project (DRP) . DRP topics are floated by the faculty members which are then offered to the students. The thesis work accounts for 14 credits and the students can undertake either a research-based thesis or a project-based thesis. The area or topic of work could be within the Building Energy Performance domain involving field measurements, experimentation and simulation. Students learn to carry out literature review of the previous work carried out in the respective area and identify the gap or lines of study needed for further investigation.
