Senior Thesis Submission Guidelines

Theses are due in the Physics Academic Programs Office on Friday, May 12, 2017 for the June ’17 degree list. They will then be signed by Professor Nergis Mavalvala, Physics Associate Head.

You need to submit one copy of your thesis. It must be on acid-free paper with original signature.

Do not bind your thesis. Use thesis covers and clamps which are available in the cabinet outside the Binding and Repair Section of the MIT Libraries (14-0513) or Institute Archives (14N-118).

Each cover must have a label with the following information: author’s name, thesis title, department, and month & year of graduation. Valid graduation dates are September, February and June.

We recommend that you use the thesis template on Athena to write your thesis. For more detailed information please refer to the Specifications for Thesis Preparation at the MIT Libraries.
