More About the Author

Nicholas Walliman is a qualified architect and Senior Lecturer in the School of the Built Environment at Oxford Brookes University and a researcher associate in the Oxford Institute for Sustainable Development. After many years of practice in architecture in the UK and abroad, he returned to academic life to do his PhD. This experience raised his interest in research theory and methods and provided the incentive for writing books on research theory and methods for students and practitioners at various levels of expertise.

He is currently conducting research with a team of architects and environmental scientists engaged in nationally and internationally funded projects on a range of aspects of building technology, such as energy saving building envelope design, mitigation of the effects of floods on buildings and advanced construction methods. He has published numerous research papers on aspects of architectural technology. Despite this emphasis on science and technology, his work with research students covers many other aspects of architecture and its relationship to society, such as vernacular architecture, architectural education, design theory, conservation, administration and sustainable design.

Product Description

Review

'This book is one of the most helpful I have seen in terms of helping undergraduate students understand the methods and principles involved in carrying out research for the final dissertation which many degree courses require. In essence it is a complete guide, covering every aspect of the process, outlining each step from selecting a theme to final writing and submission' -ESCalate

About the Author

Nicholas Walliman is a qualified architect and Senior Lecturer in the School of the Built Environment at Oxford Brookes University and a researcher associate in the Oxford Institute for Sustainable Development. After many years of practice in architecture in the UK and abroad, he returned to academic life to do his PhD. This experience raised his interest in research theory and methods, and he was subsequently asked by the university to write a distance learning course to guide postgraduate students embarking on research degrees. This course provided the raw material and incentive for writing this book. He has subsequently published several other books on research theory and methods for students and practitioners at various levels of expertise. He is currently conducting research with a team of architects and environmental scientists as part of the Oxford Brookes Institute for Sustainable Development. They are engaged in nationally and internationally funded projects on a range of aspects of building technology, such as energy saving building envelope design, mitigation of the effects of floods on buildings and advanced construction methods. He has published numerous research papers on aspects of architectural technology. He is also supervising several PhD and Masters students. Despite this emphasis on science and technology, his work with research students covers many other aspects of architecture and its relationship to society, such as vernacular architecture, the effects of westernisation, architectural education, conservation, administration and sustainable design.

Format: Paperback
In our university they give lectures on how to do a dissertation however they mixed what we had to for the proposal up with what we had to do for our dissertation. I was so confused, worried and upset. One of the lecturers recommended this book. I thought I could find all the information online but I couldn't so I bought this book. It is fantastic!!! Whether you have to do a qualitative or quantative approach to your dissertation it does not matter. I use this book all the time and I have recommended it to all of my friends. With the literature review I would recommend looking that up on youtube, there is a lecturer who shows you previous work and talks you through it.
If your stuck or just need a little bit of extra guidance buy this book!

Ordered and arrived in just a few days in good condition.

Excellent book to help you understand dissertation terminology. The stuff your tutor talks about can be found here. Good to read the 267 pages first, it helps to refer back to later. Definitely worth the purchase.

This book is a generic guide to dissertations, it offers no guidance to any specific subject, instead it offers an overall insight into how to go about, planning, researching and writing your undergraduate dissertation. It does this through informative writing, guides and example.

The book also offers a good insight into writing in general.
