General rules

In accordance with the requirements of IEEE Style, the following template should be used for referencing a PhD dissertation or a master’s thesis:

Author, “Title,” Work typeFaculty/DepartmentUniversityCityCountryyear.


  • Put the type of the cited work (e.g. Ph.D. dissertation, M.S. thesis, etc.) in the Work type element.
  • Give the Faculty/Department and University elements in the abbreviated form.
  • Often, a thesis might lack the information about the department/faculty. Should this be the case, omit the respective element from the reference.
  • See more about the Country element here.

For the rules of giving authors’ names in IEEE Style, see this article.

For a dissertation published online, add the Internet source details to the reference:
