First official meeting

The meeting was basically to explain to us the structure of the thesis project, how it is going to be assessed and the due dates for each component.

Dr. Calvo also gave us a handout on how to write a better thesis, basically the structure we should follow should be:
  1. Introduction
    - Problem statement
    - Aim and scope
    - Thesis overview
  2. Background
    - List, analyse and explain past research
    - Want: new solution to an old problem
    - Current theory and practice
  3. Own Work
    - Design of your own work and results
    - Your own contribution
  4. Synthesis
    - Discussion and conclusions
