Master’s theses and doctoral dissertations form a large — and largely underutilized — source of information available to students and researchers. Even if you are not working on a master’s degree or Ph.D., the bibliographies included in these kinds of documents can provide useful information for your own papers and projects. They can also save you time and effort when doing research of your own.
This collection includes Masters Theses and Doctoral Dissertations, and other similar projects, completed in the College of Engineering and Computer Science. Records for print-only, retrospectively scanned, and electronic works are included—digital copies are included where available.
If your thesis or dissertation is one of the print-only works completed prior to 2004, you can help us make it available online for use by researchers around the world. If you would like to grant permission to the Library to digitize your work, follow the instructions on the distribution consent form here. Theses and dissertations will be digitized as time allows and will not become immediately accessible.
You can go directly to ResearchSpace to search theses by author, title or subject.
ResearchSpace is the online repository of the University of KwaZulu-Natal. It houses the full text of all new theses issued by the university. In addition, the library is at present involved in a project to digitise all past theses from the university, so many of these are also available full text .
