Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) at Pitt are one of the final steps in the graduate student experience. However, the ETD process begins early and involves learning new skills and gaining knowledge, both about your research topics as well as about the process of creating and publishing a document.
This website is broken into steps to help you along the way. When you start the thesis or dissertation process, right after your proposal is accepted, read the material on the "Prepare" page to get you started on the right path and to save you time and frustration later. As you work and write, check back on our "Write" pages for resources that will help you with common questions and problems during the process. And when you are nearing the end, make sure to read the "Submit" pages so that you know what you need to do and when.
