Frequently Asked Questions and good advice.
Sample master's theses:
Although these examples are not all from the computer science field, they give an good indication of the expected level of complexity and discussion.

and Implementation of an Auralization System with a Spectrum-Based
Temporal Processing Optimization

- The Tista and Pycast systems: Streaming with open standards
This document describes the Tista on-demand streaming server
and archiv- ing system, and the Pycast real-time streaming
encoding application, both of which have been developed at
Østfold University College, Norway. It also in- cludes a brief
history of streaming, as well as an overview of significant
media codecs, formats, transports and streaming protocols.
Advice on writing tools and publishing.
- The final thesis may by presented on a website, but it mus also
be handed in as a printed document. It is therefore a good idea to
use a tpesetting system such as LaTeX or DocBook.
- LaTeX is preinstalled on most Unix/Linux systems and is
available for free downloading on both MS Windows and Mac OS
platforms. LaTeX is a high-quality typesetting system; it includes
features designed for the production of technical and scientific
documentation. LaTeX is the de facto standard for the communication
and publication of scientific
- LaTeX has package implementations for most western and some
- Effective writing and markup for LaTeX or DocBook is
significantly enhanced by the use of a good text editor such as
Emacs which has major modes in the form of eLisp modules for many
writing and programming environments. (See the resources page.)
