"M.S. in Electrical Engineering for a plagiarized thesis"
I recently came across an M.S. thesis with some academic integrity issues. I feel an ethical and professional responsibility to address the problem. I'm concerned about the dilution of academic standards since two students who "wrote" the thesis were awarded with M.S. degree in the same department (Electrical and Computer Engineering Department). Note that the first thesis titled ?A Neuro-Fuzzy Classification System for IOS Data in Asthmatic Children? in 2008, and the second thesis titled "An Integrated Software Package for Model-Based Neuro-Fuzzy Classification of Small Airway Dysfunction? in 2009. The second one has even won the "Outstanding Thesis and Dissertation in 2009". It is a cold joke.

I can post a link here to a preview of the thesis from UMI ProQuest so that you can evaluate the extent of the plagiarism. What is typically done in these situations? Is a rewrite a valid option even if the majority of the text is not original (essentially the whole thesis would need to be rewritten in order to comply with common academic standards)? Please note that the adviser of the second thesis was the committee member of the first thesis. Also the adviser of the first thesis was the committee member of the second. Do you think the thesis advisers did not know the contents before signing off on a plagiarized thesis?
