Areas and-thesis-proposal-outline

  1. 1. Topic Areas for BSCS Thesis 2015
  2. 2. 1. Mobile Computing system –What is mobile computing? •The ability to use technology in remote or mobile (non static) environments. This technology is based on the use of battery powered, portable, and wireless computing and communication devices, like smartmobile phones.
  3. 3. 1. Mobile Computing system • The term is evolved in modern usage such that it requires that the mobile computing activity be connected wirelessly to and through the Internet or to and through a private network (Wikipedia).
  4. 4. 1. Mobile Computing system • Example of this Are; – Grade Inquiry System, –Traffic Monitoring System
  5. 5. 2. Embedded System • It processes a fixed set of pre-programmed instructions to control electromechanical equipment which may be part of an even larger system (not a computer with keyboard, display, etc).
  6. 6. 2. Embedded System • System is a way of working, organizing or performing one or many tasks according to a fixed set of rules, program or plan. • A general-purpose definition of embedded systems is that they are devices used to control, monitor or assist the operation of equipment, machinery or plant. “Embedded” reflects the fact that they are an integral part of the system.
  7. 7. 2. Embedded System • Embedded systems often interact (sense, manipulate & communicate) with external world through sensorsand actuators and hence are typically reactive systems; a reactive system is in continual interaction with the environment and executes at a pace determined by that environment.
  8. 8. 2. Embedded System • Industrial machines, automobiles, medical equipment, cameras, household appliances, airplanes, vending machines and toys (as well as the more obvious cellular phone and PDA) are among the myriad possible hosts of an embedded system.
  9. 9. 2. Embedded System • Examples: –home security systems, –lighting systems –alarm systems,
  10. 10. 3. Intelligent Systems • An intelligent system is a machine with an embedded, Internet- connected computer that has the capacity to gather and analyze data and communicate with other systems.
  11. 11. 3. Intelligent Systems • Requirements for an intelligent system include security, connectivity, the ability to adapt according to current data and the capacity for remote monitoring and management.
  12. 12. 3. Intelligent Systems • Examples: • Intelligent systems exist all around us – traffic lights, smart meters, automobiles and airplane controls A smart meter is an Internet-capable device that measures energy, water or natural gas consumption of a building or home.
  13. 13. Thesis Title Proposal Outline
  14. 14. Outline I. Research Title II. Name of Proponents Name of College or Department: Name of the Head of the College or Department: III. Background of the study IV. Objectives V. Significance of the study
  15. 15. VI. Scope of the study VII. Definition of terms VIII. Related Literature IX. Technical Background X. Methodology XI. Calendar of Activity XII. Budgetary Outlay
  16. 16. Background of the study • Includes : – purpose and descriptions or background – Benefits – Factors that proponents to proposed the study •
  17. 17. Objectives • Is the concrete statement describing what the research is trying to achieve. • A well-worded objective will be SMART S - specific M - measurable A - attainable R -realistic T -Time-bound
  18. 18. • Is a purpose that can be reasonably achieved within expected time frame and with available resources. • The formulation of the research objectives will help researcher to focus on the study and avoid collection of data which are not necessary for understanding and solving problem that he or she has defined.
  19. 19. Objectives • General Objective • Specific Objectives
  20. 20. • General Objective – Are broad goals to be achieved – State what the researcher expects to achieve in general terms. • Specific Objectives - General objectives can be broken into small logical parts to form specific objectives. - General objectives is met through accomplishing all specific objectives.
  21. 21. Significance of the study • the section provides information to the reader on how the study will contribute. It must be specifically stated, however, what the study will contribute and who will benefit from it.
  22. 22. • 2 Tips in Writing the Significance of the Study – Refer to the statement of the problem • your problem statement can guide you in identifying the specific contribution of your study. You can do this by observing a one-to-one correspondence between the statement of the problem and the significance of the study.
  23. 23. • For example, if you ask the question “Is there a significant relationship between the teacher’s teaching style and the students’ long quiz scores in Mathematics?” then the contribution of your research would probably be a teaching style or styles (among say, three teaching styles you evaluated) that can help students perform better in Mathematics. Your research will demonstrate that that teaching style really works. That could be a groundbreaking approach that will change the way teachers teach Mathematics which many students abhor.
  24. 24. – Write from general to specific contribution • Write the significance of the study by looking into the general contribution of your study, such as its importance to society as a whole, then proceed downwards—towards its contribution to individuals and that may include yourself as a researcher. You start off broadly then taper off gradually to a specific group or person.
