Thesis and Dissertation Office - Workshops


ATTENTION: New, simpler format rules have been approved for 2016.

The Format Guide web page has details.



Attention Engineering Students!

Vivian Reed, the thesis evaluator, will be on hand to give formatting advice at the Formatting Clinic sponsored by the College of Engineering Writing and Communication Resource Center. She is ready to answer any questions you have about the new 2016 format rules, submission deadlines and the submission process. Bring a Word doc or PDF of your manuscript on laptop or USB flashdrive (or printed out version is fine too). There will be a sign-up sheet and first-come-first served order. Informational handouts will be available to read while you wait and you can listen to Vivian's discussions with other students to find out formatting details.

Location: VEC 128 B

Date: Monday, June 13, 2016

Time: 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m


Workshops for all disciplines are being planned for September and November. Details will be posted on this web page as soon as rooms are booked.


The Library-sponsored Research & Writing Workshops calendar provides the most up-to-date listings for workshops  on citation software and graduate workshops. 

Department or college specific seminars can be set up by departmental graduate advisors or committee chairs in cooperation with the Thesis and Dissertation Office. Format seminars for manuscript preparation can be scheduled between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Check with your departmental graduate advisor or committee chair for date, time, and location. If no seminar has been scheduled, or if a time conflict occurs, please contact the Thesis and Dissertation Office for assistance or questions concerning the preparation of your thesis, project report or dissertation.


Interested in a drop-in workshop with one-to-one help with formatting and creating a PDF? Call or email the Thesis Office to let us know. If there's enough interest, we'll schedule some.
