Research findings from selected dissertation

A dissertation is a detailed discourse on a research topic in the area of real estate and construction chosen by the student, to be executed following scientific methodology principles as taught in Research Methods. It aims to train students to think scientifically, and to carry out and complete an entire research project on their own, under a dissertation supervisor. Students are expected to identify and define a problem for scientific research; substantiate the research problem, and as appropriate, propose testable hypotheses with appropriate methodology and data; collect empirical data to test the proposed hypotheses and explain the regularities in the data collected; and carry out further research to widen and deepen the analysis.
