The final and central requirement for awarding the Ph.D. degree is the completion of a substantial and original independent research project. The successful completion of this requirement is demonstrated through the production of a dissertation document, describing the research project and its results, and the defense of the project from challenges offered by the members of the student’s faculty Dissertation Committee. The quality of the dissertation and the defense of its thesis are evaluated by the Dissertation Committee in order to determine if the student has successfully completed this final requirement for the Ph.D. degree in architecture.
