Working not on my Rover, but on my Bachelor's thesis in Civil Engineering. I carried out research into sediment diversionary mechanisms for river intake screens. My finished thesis presenting their design over 207 pages and 43,000 words. In so doing, I solved Ron's thesis.jpg a problem that had persisted with a rural Council for 34 years, whilst extending the current field of research into submerged vanes. I feel quite proud to be honest :)

No rest though, now I concentrate on working as a Civil/Structural Engineer whilst continuing to study for my Master's degree in Civil Engineering.

Well done Ron. No wonder you went quiet there for a bit. Kudos to you mate for all that hard yakka.
Thanks Gerald :) I enjoyed the process and the research, but I certainly would have appreciated more time for other things too.

Sounds more substantial than the usual Bachelor's thesis. In fact sounds more like a Masters.
Hi Mike,

I received similar comments from the subject coordinator. From what I had read, the average length of a Bachelor's thesis in Civil Engineering is around 120 pages. It is good practice, as my Master's thesis will also be research based.
