Building Technology Final Year Project Research Topics

Building Technology Project Topic: To do an undergraduate research in building technology, students should first decide on the key areas they will like to choose their building technology project topics from; it could be one area or even more. These areas must be of interest to the final year students to have made it to their final year project topics choice list. Next, final year project students of building technology should draft project topics from the areas of their course which they find worthwhile. These project topics you choose must be researchable, dated, feasible and time bound. In other words project topics choose for building technology project research must be one that yields to the tweaks of research, must stand the test of time and must have practicable research outcome and not totally abstract.
