What is expected from a bachelor's thesis (for engineering)? My adviser won't tell me and the guidelines/marking scheme don't say anything. Also are advisers only meant to give "high level" advice (e.g. what areas to study) rather than technical stuff? Or is it the other way around? I don't know either way, but I'm worried that if I ask him the wrong thing then he'll take away marks from the "conduct" section of my grade (worth 12 %). Although I've already turned up to about 3 meetings not knowing anything, so I've probably lost most of those. I've also done close to no work and have to hand in the report in around 60 days. Is this feasible? I'm not a complete waster going on here as a last ditch thing, I've always had really good grades, even last term when I didn't revise well. That lack of work and zero motivation in the revision period has continued in to this term.
