Product Description

Review

"Although there are significant differences between the UK and US educational models, students at the university level in either system can benefit from Farrell′s suggestions and examples for dissertation writing." (Book News, 1 March 2011)

 

From the Back Cover

As a built environment student you are likely to be required to research, write and submit a dissertation as a core component of your degree studies. As a vocational profession, students of the built environment often have strong practical aspirations. Writing a Built Environment Dissertation provides practical guidance and will help to steer you into a position where you can develop a good dissertation by mixing your practical strengths with more theoretical tools.

The book is ordered around a common dissertation structure: that is, it starts with material that should be in the introduction and finishes with material that should be in the conclusion. Each chapter provides a commentary on the kind of information that you should put in each chapter of your dissertation, supported by a variety of examples using a range of methodological designs. The book has a strong focus on data collection, data analysis, reliability and validity all areas where student dissertations are often weak. Material that will help you think about study skills and ethics is embedded throughout the book, and the chapters on qualitative and quantitative analysis will show you how to carry out a rigorous analysis while avoiding some of the complexity in statistical work.

If you are an under–graduate student in the final year of an honours degree programme in the built environment, or perhaps a student at masters or PhD level and have been away from academic study for some time, then this book will help you to write a more innovative and thorough dissertation.

This book Writing a Built Environment Dissertation: Practical Guidance and Examples is an absolute life line. I am writing a dissertation for a BSc. (Hons) Civil Engineering and this book has helped immeasurably. It is full of practical examples and easy to follow steps. With some handy tips for referencing and constructing your discussion, I would be lost now without this handy reference book.

Excellent and relatively easy to read. Guides you through the process of your dissertation chapter by chapter. The chapters on statistics are excellent and have been a godsend when determining the hypothesis.
