Based on the research areas or what you have learned in a particular
class, an honor student can choose your thesis director. Your director needs to be a full-time ASU faculty member.
Then he/she can work with your thesis director to find a second reader. Your second reader can be someone outside of ASU.
He/she can work on a thesis or a creative project. One can come up with an innovative idea to solve a computational problem as a thesis or create some software that is not found elsewhere as a creative project.
Barrett requires a two-person thesis committee: The thesis director must be a continuing faculty member at ASU with a terminal degree; the second committee member can be anyone with sufficient expertise in the thesis topic.
CSE493. CSE492 and 493 (and 499, 484) may be taken only by senior students who have completed at least one semester in residence and who have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher in the major or field of specialization. It will be ideal if a student has completed CSE310.
CS/CSE Honors Students are allowed to use an extra three hours of their electives which can be satisfied with
CSE493. Students may not use more than 6 hours of total credits in CSE499, 492,
493, and 484 towards either degree program in Computer Science or Computer Systems Engineering.
Students can start thinking of thesis topics as early as their freshman and sophomore years. The students should definitely have a clear plan of the thesis topics or research by their junior year.

Undergraduate students within Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering can also participate in FURI (Fulton Undergraduate Research Initiative) to receive a stipend while doing a research or working on a thesis:
