I successfully defended my thesis Wednesday! I was also pleased that my committee members and two other professors were very eager to provide feedback. Some minor suggestions and things to fix, but the defense went well and I passed!
Besides the thesis show, the last part I have left is documentation, which is to do a write-up summarizing the process and how I solved my thesis problem.
I have to say, I am very happy with this project and how it turned out. I know this is rare for a grad student, but I never got sick of working on my thesis. I always looked forward to working on this project and figuring out how this might help a patient manage their health someday through design. As someone who has had a chronic illness, I know how frustrating dealing with the accumulation of papers and enormous amounts of health information is. I’m pleased with my progress and am so happy to be ending my six years at RIT with a project that I have a personal connection to and am very passionate and proud of. This was the perfect way to conclude my studies and end my college career.
