The student should consult with the Graduate College document "Requirements for Graduate Theses" and the advisor on matters pertaining to thesis format and detail. All committee members have the privilege of examining corrected drafts as well as earlier drafts before the thesis is accepted and submitted to the Graduate College. It is the student's responsibility to submit the thesis or dissertation to the Examining Committee at least two weeks prior to the final examination. In addition to Graduate College requirements, the student is required to prepare one bound copy of the approved thesis for the Industrial Engineering Program and other copies as required by the Examining Committee.
