Information for Current Graduate Students
When preparing your thesis, please refer to the guidelines for thesis organization, format and style provided by the College of Graduate Studies and Research. Further information can be found on the Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) portion of this site. The ETD portion of the website provides a link to a Thesis Template for Microsoft Word which can be used for preparing your thesis. Instructions for using the template are also provided. If you are using Microsoft Word to write your thesis, use of this template is recommended to ensure that your thesis meets the organization, format and style standards of the College of Graduate Studies and Research.
Your Supervisor(s) and Advisory Committee may also have some recommendations on the organization, format and style of your thesis, which should be communicated to you when you are given approval to begin writing your thesis. Both the traditional thesis format and the manuscript-style thesis format are permitted. The Department of Mechanical Engineering has adopted specific guidelines for manuscript-style theses.
The College of Graduate Studies and Research (CGSR) requires all M.Sc. and Ph.D. students to submit an electronic thesis or dissertation (ETD). Supervisors may still require a bound copy of a thesis. Provision can be made for restricting access completely or restricting access to on-campus users only for one year, with the possibility of up to two one-year extensions. These restrictions must be requested and agreed to by both the student and the supervisor. Requests for extensions of the restrictions must be made well in advance of the release date.
The University of Saskatchewan Library
maintains a fully searchable database of electronic theses and dissertations. To find a thesis from a previous graduate student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, please visit the University of Saskatchewan Electronic Theses & Dissertations Site
