Annotation
At two European universities providing technical and general computing education, we conducted a survey of undergraduate and graduate student experiences with final thesis work. We focused on the needs of students, role of their supervisor, and perception of institutional scaffolding. Learning style as a background variable was measured using the Need for Cognition instrument. From a sample of 44 responses we draw conclusions that inform computing educators about the wished-for approaches and support for final thesis work that seem necessary from the student point-of-view. These include the highlighted need for expert advice, time management issues and significant correlations between the required expert support and need for cognition.
