I am a Master student in Civil engineering, I have recently moved in to the US. Its just been 20 days since the classes started and I am already asked to decide on a topic for my thesis, which I'm suppose to be working on for the NEXT 2 YEARS.
I have taken up classes that Im interested in and I'd like to pursue my research in the same classes/areas. I think I will be able to understand a little bit about the classes at the end of my semester (understand as in learn something out of it). The classes that I have taken up are relatively new for me (I have no prior knowledge on those topics, not even from my undergrad), so how can I decide on a topic even before ACTUALLY STUDYING about it?
Its driving me crazy, the assignment for selecting a topic is due this week and the only advise my 'advisor' gave me is to read literature. I dont know what is expected of me, like do they seriously expect me to learn everything (the things that Im going to learn during my Master's) just by reading articles/journals?!
Im confused, someone please help.
