This course is part of the final requirements for BS Fisheries degree, designed to help the students (3rd year) write or refine and finalize a previously written draft thesis research proposal in preparation for an oral defense during the current semester. This is also an opportunity to discuss or further discuss with their respective advisers. In this way, the students can acquire additional knowledge and skills on technical writing, research designs and methods, presentation, and further train them with systematic and meaningful inquiry, investigation and hypothesis testing, with the goal of making science-based solutions to problems, with focus on fisheries and aquatic sciences.
