Master of Science in Building Technology (SMBT)

May 2021 Special instructions for SMBT Thesis Students

SMBT thesis students should consult right away with your thesis advisor to discuss a plan for completing the remainder of your thesis work, taking into account the loss of access to MIT facilities. The scope of thesis will vary from student to student, so it will be up to you and your advisor, to determine what alterations may be required. Note that thesis is considered instruction, and therefore thesis advising must be conducted online like all other classes.
