29 6 Proposal Format The proposal should be no more than 40 pages long, exclusive of references and appendixes. A candidate must choose the details carefully to convey the key ideas. The document should contain at least the following parts. Title Page Introduction This is a statement of the problem, with motivation. The background about the overall area., the hypothesis and/or goals, the key technical ideas, and the likely contributions of the work. Background Discuss foundational work upon which yours builds, as well as alternate approaches to the problem. Discuss themes in the literature, so that a reader gets an overview of the whole field rather than a mere list of previous results. Relate previous work to one another and to your approach. Explain what is different about your approach and why others have not attempted it before. Methods and Procedures Describe the main challenges and innovations that are needed to accomplish the proposed hypotheses, with as much description as possible of how you will accomplish each one. Describe methodology for evaluating whether your ideas work or your hypotheses are correct. Indicate whether each part of the work is complete or remains to be done. Initial and Future Work For work you have already completed, give only a brief summary. For work that remains to be done, give a more detailed plan, including any major risks and a timeline for completion, sufficient for an outsider to evaluate its chances of success. The proposal should be concrete enough that the committee can evaluate whether it would make a good dissertation. 29

30 Limitations Describe the strengths and weaknesses of your approach, including what it can and cannot do. References Reference all relevant work in your proposal and list all relevant work. Appendices (if necessary) Only include appendix material as needed. All material put into the appendix should be referenced in the proposal. 30

31 7 Dissertation Style Guide 7.1 Order and Components The thesis or dissertation is typically organized into three main sections: 1) the preliminary pages; 2) the body; and 3) the reference pages.

45 9 Funding Graduate students in the College of Engineering may have variety of opportunities to offset the cost of graduate school. Students who are provided funding by off campus agencies are subject to the requirements of those agencies. Students who are funded by the University, College, or Department as a minimum must maintain a 3.0 grade point average and receive no more than two (2) grades of C or lower to maintain funding. 9.1 Ph.D. Teaching Fellows Ph.D. Teaching Fellows are typically hired to teach and assist faculty in undergraduate courses in the College of Engineering. The funding for these positions comes from the university and includes a stipend to cover living expenses and a graduate tuition waiver of 21 credit hours per academic year. These positions are awarded by a committee of three IEEM faculty members and typically start and end according to the undergraduate academic year. Continuation of these awards is dependent upon performance during the academic year. Unsatisfactory performance is cause for discontinuation of the award and will be determined by an end of the year review prior to May 1 of the academic year. Fellows may request a performance review at any point during the academic year. A request should be made in writing to the Chair of the IEEM department. 9.2 Teaching Assistants These positions are awarded by individual faculty members who have received external funding as part of a grant request. Continuation of these awards is completely dependent on available funding and the discretion of the individual faculty member. The amount and availability of funding is variable and should be discussed with the sponsoring faculty member. Teaching 45
