This camp is primarily an opportunity for students to have dedicated, focused time to work on their thesis, dissertation, or other academic project. Writing resources will be provided, and the technical editor will be on hand to answer questions and to provide personalized guidance. Students should bring their own laptop.
This afternoon camp is designed to assist students at any stage of thesis/dissertation writing. Topics will include planning a writing project, resources, and Missouri S&T thesis/dissertation specifications. The final two hours of the workshop will be devoted to completing a specific goal that students will define in the first hour of the workshop. Students will have the opportunity to consult one-on-one with the editor if desired. Please bring your own laptop and a current writing project.
