How To Write A Thesis In The Field Of Indoor Air Environment Quality And Sick Building Syndrome Health

How To Write Thesis Regarding Indoor Air Quality And Sick Building Syndrome And Health (Part II/II)

This article is going to discuss the ideas of managing and creating proper write up for the thesis in the field of epidemiology and environmental health. Basic understanding of the thesis write up may differ from one institution to the others. We, therefore, adopt the APA standard of write up which students’ can adapt from any Malaysian universities. The detail of the structure of the thesis is discussed in the videos below.

How To Write A Thesis For Environmental Health And Epidemiology

Video explains the ideas of thesis write up for epidemiological and environmental health study

 

You can find the example of thesis write up standard and protocol by visiting the IPTA available in Malaysia. Example of the thesis structure for the indoor air quality study and health can be summarized as follows. Please be informed that this is only the examples of the previous candidate, please do use these ideas, as a general guideline only.
