The Arrival of the End
It has been a while since I last visited these here pages with an account of the adventures I have experienced as an MSc student in ECS. Now I find these adventures have come to end, brought about by the end of my oh so important dissertation.
For those of you that don’t know, the dissertation is the super-project that separates the MSc from a normal undergraduate degree. You are given less supervision and basically left to do what you want how you want to, very intimidating.
The hardest thing about your Dissertation is inspiring yourself to do work. The amount of free time you have suddenly quadruples, and you have to keep in mind that the deadline date is not going to change, and if you don’t work to a plan, you will end up with far too much work. Thankfully I was able for the most part to stick with the plan I had, and bring my project in on schedule. I must give credit where credit is due and thank my supervisor Dr Colin Snook for helping me to do this, and hopefully he will like the project enough to give me a good mark.
Sadly I was unable to go to the MSc Dissertation submission party as I had to go to a dinner in Bath where my new job is. Thankfully, even though the constant news is of recession I have been able to get a good job in a fantastic city.
To all the new MSc students, I wish you good luck, and let you know that you can go forward with the knowledge that your degree will be highly competitive and relevant to the demands of employers.
To all of my classmates and other ECS MSc students from 2008-2009 I thank you for a fantastic year. I have been able to forge memories that will last a lifetime, I wish all of you who have found jobs success in them and all of you who are about to start looking, good luck though I doubt you need it.
In closing I would like to thank everyone who has read my blog over the past year and enjoyed it, bad grammar and all. It has been a blast writing it and I hope I can do something like this again in the future.
Until then, Bye.
