The dissertation should be an exposition of your own work and ideas. Since the subject areas of dissertations can be very diverse it is impossible to define a standard approach to content. However, the dissertation should include an introduction and definition of objectives, a review of relevant literature, an assessment of the problem followed by a description of your approach to solving it, your results or findings, analysis of your results, an intellectual discussion of your findings, the conclusions you have drawn from the discussion and finally recommendations for future work.
