Hi, (Not sure whether I can post here..) When doing MS in computer science how to decide whether to go thesis option or non-thesis option? My advisor suggests doing Thesis. But I think if I am going for a job interview it would be best to show them a good project work. How to decide? what are things to consider? After deciding where should I look for topics? I am reading some computer journals.. thanks a lot, Vanitha.
thesis would be a better option. it gives u an opportunity to do independent research work, though not at a Ph.d. level.here in germany, its included in the curriculum and we dont have a "thesis/non-thesis" option. We gotto to do a project work + masters thesis. and in my opinion thesis will lay the groundwork for further studies(phd, if interested). as far as the topic is concerned, I would choose a field i am interested in and concentrate only on that area. example neural networks, signal processing, networking etc. and search for topics in that area. I would also talk to the professors in the concerned areas and seek their advice in choosing the topics. over here, the professors offer topics to students for their projekt work + thesis as it compulsory. otherwise we search for them in the industries.
Personally I don't see a significant difference. If you're going into academia/research, do a thesis. What are the tradeoffs of doing one / not doing one? --Mark

Hi all, Thanks for your replies. I also thought that if I want to do research then do thesis, but I am really not interested in research....I will think about Mark's question what are the tradeoffs of doing one / not doing one? thanks again, Vanitha.
They weren't very bright, but they were very, very big. Ad contrast:
