It’s your final year, you are near the end of your degree, and it’s time to write your thesis. Technology students are always so thoughtful and capable of thinking innovative but still, they got stuck while finding the suitable technology research topic for their final year.

I know choosing a Technology dissertation topic is quite hard, and if you are doing it for the first time, then it’s harder because of the many options in your mind that constantly confuse you.

Learn basic and process 

We start with the fundamentals which are understanding the requirement of institutions. Like which research process your department or university is preferring. this is a common mistake that most students do so always check for the handouts and read the instructions carefully which is provided by your professor. Next code out that is actually what your department or university required in any dissertation or research paper.

If you don’t know the basics about the research process and research method then you need to learn what kind of methodologies and analysis methods are used to collect the data and then evaluate the data.

Read previous students’ dissertation

After understanding the basics and research process next step is to review all the previous work of your university students. you need to look at the previous dissertation and thesis that your seniors have delivered.

Next is to understand the current state of literature for your chosen interesting areas. Click on the prime opportunities which are still unanswered and grab the keywords.

After that, you will find out particular keywords, while searching them on google scholar you will get multiple types of research on it. I will suggest you to skimmed read out 5 to 6 previous generals from which you will identify the gaps.
